I would like to insert a quote into the LyX document that stands out from the rest of the text and is displayed as a display formula would be (on a separate line with space around it). For example:

Hello, this is some random text that I have. Hello, this is some random 
text that I have also. Hello, this is some random text that I have again. 
Hello, this is some random text that I have. Hello, this is some random 
text that I have also. Hello, this is some random text that I have again. 

    Some famous quote

Hello, this is some random text that I have. Hello, this is some random 
text that I have also. Hello, this is some random text that I have again. 
Hello, this is some random text that I have. Hello, this is some random 
text that I have also. Hello, this is some random text that I have again.

Use the Quotation layout for that specific paragraph (from the top-left drop-down menu). This will place the paragraph inside a quotation environment, specifically used to highlight some piece of text:

The way to do this is through the csquotes package. Here is a link with detailed instructions and an example:

    Is there some reason you don't want to use the built-in "Quote" and "Quotation" constructs from the format menu? Apologies if I'm not using the right terminology; I'm not a LyX user myself. – Paul Gessler Dec 30 '14 at 0:02
