The problem with this sort of solution is that it's very fragile. The values you want to use for the spacing depend on the font size. Even worse, the values depend on where the list environment occurs relative to the quote environment, e.g. quote followed by itemize requires a different adjustment than itemize-quote-itemize.
It seems to me that a much more robust solution would be to prevent the quote environment from interacting with the other list environments to begin with, rather than trying to undo the damage. I don't guess that anyone knows how to do that?
