    Chris,

    I didn't write the sentence, but let me try to answer your question & help you with your spelling. Quotient is a math term. When you divide one number into another number, the answer is the "quotient" or result. The quotient could be relatively large or small. In the sentence "quotient" is being used, the writer is saying that liking it is the only possible result considered. In other words, whatever the writer is referring to doesn't matter much.

    Spelling: Not to embarass you, just to help...
    qutie should be quite
    recoken: recken (a southern USA term, especially Texas)
