Nice quotation environment for LaTeX

The quote...

The above is the result of some fiddling around with \LaTeX. The aim was to create an academic style with some popular science article influences. Here’s how to do it:

\newcommand qoutiepie[2] {
\begin{figure}
\begin{center}
\parbox{6.5cm}{
\parbox{0.4cm}{\Huge{``}}
\large {#1}''
\\ \flushright {#2}
}
\end{center}
\end{figure}
}

And called

\qoutiepie{Some pretty words followed by some more pretty words.}{Anonymous}

Looks good in a two-column article.
