Is there a way to get quotes only from wikiquotes json api?

I am making a string parser that will parse the string from the data gotten from json and get the quotes from it, but it seems like a big waste of time if there was a way to just get the quotes from the api. I have looked on the documentation and found nothing on just getting the quotes, but if you guys have any insight that would really help me out. Thanks.

Unfortunately, there isn’t, however, if you stick to people and a certain section, the parsing not as difficult as you’d think.

Here’s my unstyled Random Quote Generator. It uses the Wikiquote API.

Essentially, you can save the HTML text response to a variable and parse it with a DOM parser

Hope this could give you some ideas
