Twenty Thirteen: improve Quote post format styles to look more like quotes

Reported by MarkJaquith and Nacin, Quote post format styles could look more like quotes.

There’s one thing that kind of seems off to me… the Quote format. It doesn’t seem very “Quote-y”. None of the traditional blockquote cues are used… indentation, quote marks, left-border… Same for source. No em-dash.
Also agree that quotes lack sufficient styling. This isn’t just designer’s license, this is an issue of things looking like they are plagiarized. (Someone else, a journalist, pointed this out to me at a meetup, and I forgot to relay it.) It needs to be clear that a quote is a quote.
CSS patch attached, provided by Joen. Here's what it should look like: http://cl.ly/image/3H2K3j2J1B3D
These two add opening and closing curly quotes. CSS 3 actually has those builtin, i.e. content: open-quote; and content: close-quote;. But neither of those work in Chrome, hence the escaped glyphs.
