comment Capitalizing quotations with initial omission?
Understandable. =) However, I'm really looking for what is "correct," or at least widely accepted, so it would be really nice to have a reference to some sort of authority on the topic. It's very likely that I will accept your answer if such a reference is provided.

Great answer! Could you possibly include some backing for your answer? Major names that use this approach, perhaps?

comment Capitalizing quotations with initial omission?
I apologize for the poor example. You are indeed correct that removing the first four words in my example does remove some of the original richness of the quotation. +1 on your comment. There are, however, many times when I have wanted to nondestructively remove an initial clause in, for instance, a compound sentence, and found myself at a loss as to how to capitalize the remaining quotation.

@Hugo You could have simply added the summary yourself. Contributing is always better than a slap in the face.
