Pulling randomly from a separate file for Discord.

I need to pull from a text file (which I've done) but I need it to randomly pick from a list of defined quotes and send them randomly when i execute a command in discord. Thank you in advance.

put it inside the on command so then it gets generated each time instead of only when the program starts

@client.command()
async def quote(ctx):
  random_quote = choice(quotes)
  await ctx.send(random_quote)

Thank you. I didn't not think of that.
