Shortcut to add random quote to a note?

I create a note for each day from a template.

I’d love to be able to add a random quote to the top of the note as it’s created from the template.

By ‘quote’ I mean a sentence or two of text. In my case, it would actually be ideas or lessons that I want to be reminded of from time to time, like “What works? Do more of it!”

Perhaps I could add these quotes to a source note, one per line, and the shortcut could pull one in random from the note and add it to destination note when the template is run.

I am useless at creating shortcuts, posting here in case someone who enjoys this stuff is inspired!

This is indeed the kind of stuff you could use the Shortcuts app for, perhaps others can chime in with an example.
