I am not sure the approach one has to take in personalizing a web
page. I understand how the server can find out who is requesting the
web page with Cookies, but then does this mean that when returning
information, the server has to look at a particular table or database
for every particular person to return the information they are asking

Taking the same example as in the exercise. Does there have to be a
table that contains the index number of every quotation for every
person would like to see? (or doesn't want to see)

You should consider storing the quote identifier that a user has requested not to see in the user's cookie.
