Why do pull quotes exist on the web?

There you are reading an article when suddenly it’s interrupted by a big piece of text that’s repeating something you just read in the previous paragraph.

You either end up learning to blot them out completely, or you end up reading the same sentence twice.

I think they might simply be an example of unexamined assumptions.
