Looking for a fix to an error in the tutorial 'Code a Discord bot with python'

I have just started learning how to make bots using python in discord, and I have been following the tutorial of freecodecamp for it. But just around 26 minutes in, I already have a problem. I have done the part of adding the command ‘$inspire’ which should give a random quote every time anyone uses it. However, whenever I use the command, nothing comes up in discord, instead, I get an error in the console saying,

'Ignoring exception in on_message
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/opt/virtualenvs/python3/lib/python3.8/site-packages/discord/client.py”, line 343, in _run_event
await coro(*args, **kwargs)
File “main.py”, line 25, in on_message
quote = get_quote()
File “main.py”, line 11, in get_quote
json_data = json.loads(response.text)
AttributeError: ‘function’ object has no attribute ‘text’

My code is given below,

import discord
import os
import requests
import json

client = discord.Client()

def get_quote():
  response = requests.get
  ("https://zenquotes.io/api/random")
  json_data = json.loads(response.text)
  quote = json_data[0]['q'] + " -" + json_data[0]['a']
  return(quote)

@client.event
async def on_ready():
  print('We have logged in as {0.user}'.format(client))

@client.event
async def on_message(message):
  if message.author == client.user:
    return
  
  if message.content.startswith('$inspire'):
    quote = get_quote()
    await message.channel.send(quote)

client.run(os.getenv('Token'))

Please help me :confused:
