I have got this excerpt from Wikipedia,
A sales quote is an estimated amount that a person selling something gives to a customer.
There is also a phrase product available for quote.
Do you have any ideas how the primary meaning of the verb quote being to repeat a passage, phrase, etc. evolved into the meaning of the verb estimate?
