1) QuotesCover.com - it provides you with tons of ready-made quotes, provers and citations that you can further edit and personalize - it lets you customize fonts, positioning, background image, and throws in some nice touches as "soft-focusing" the background, adding drop-shadows to your text, or emphasizing specific words.

To this list I'll add Live Luve Create, which has quite a lot of sophisticated tools for manipulating the photo and adding borders. Plus, they've got a little plugin that works with Chrome (at least) that allows you to instantly annotate a photo from the current page you're viewing: www.liveluvcreate.com/
