[Tutor] Tkinter Q's

Hi first off, here's my code:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from Tkinter import *
import random
import time
import about
import quotes

def closeprog():
    raise SystemExit

class main:
    root = Tk()
    frame = Frame()
    root.title("Quoter %s" % (about.ver))
    root.minsize(300, 50)

    showquote = Label(root, text=random.choice(quotes.quote))

    exit = Button(root, text="Exit", command=closeprog)

    aboutprg = Button(root, text="About", command=about.main)

    totalq = Label(root, text=quotes.qts)

(I'd appreciate some suggestions, or notifications on how bad something is)

I have a small problem: I don't know how to make a button that would 
redisplay another quote in the same window, ie I need a button that 
says: Show Another Quote. (Actually I don't know how to make it show 
another quote even in a new window!!). I got the interface from Catfood 
Fortune Cookie.

Here's a tid-bit of the quotes module:
 # Brian Kernighan
bk1 = """Controlling complexity is the essence of computer programming.

-- Brian Kernighan"""

yadayada = """Foo/bar"""

quote = [bk1, yadayada]
