Hi 6lps,

Exactly how many quotes do you need? Do you require the phrase "small
business" or other similar phrase to appear in the quote everytime, or
will any quote do as long as it pertains to business?

hi Feilong,
Any quote will do as long as it pertains to business. Ideally 25 or
more quotes if possible.
Take care, Paul
