There are a couple of apps like these, but I still have yet to see one that allows editing those fortune files, or create new ones from scratch...

This app just calls the fortune-mod unix command, fortune-mod returns a random quote. the fortunes can be modified, see the fortune man page (type 'man fortune' in a terminal).

I am working on adding more features to MacFortune, but I do not know if managing fortunes is within the scope of my app.
