    -Try using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of CSS work. http://getfirebug.com/

    Now that you know the style, from being exposed/added by Firebug, you can add a new style to override it.

    You ought to add new styles externally, not within the theme’s files. Changes to the theme’s files will compromise the theme and be compromised when the theme updates.

    External changes can be made using a Child Theme or through a plugin that provides Custom CSS functionality.

    I recommend using the Jetpack plugin and its Custom CSS functionality to hold your CSS modifications.

    I think that may be beyond my capability.

    Just install the plugin and add this in the Custom CSS section.

    blockquote { color: #hexcode; }

    Replace hexcode with an actual hex code of the color you want. Examples: #888, #eee, #fff.

    That worked beautifully! Thank you.

    You’re welcome.

    UPDATE: I guess I should say “almost beautifully.”

    It turns out that when I enabled Jetpack, I started experiencing wonky page loads and flickering of old/new background images on refreshing. I had to disable Jetpack, but the style had an INTEGRATION tab that allowed me to enter the code.

    I really appreciate the help wpcanyon. Even though I cannot use Jetpack, I learned that I can override the CSS thanks to you and the quotes look great now.
