In another CMS that I use it's possible to request the content of a field on a page. For example, if I had a quote of the day field on the homepage, in another template If I wanted that quote to show up as well I could just refer to the quote field of the homepage. What's the best way to handle this type of content re-use in SilverStripe?

Yes you can .... ;)

Have a look at this page :
http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=built-in-page-controls&s=page%20controls

You can do something like :

<% control Page('URLSegment') %>
$YourField
<% end_control %>

For example:

<% control Page(home) %>
<ul id="portfolio">
<li>
<img src="$BannerImage1.PageBanner.URL" alt="Header Image" />
</li>

</ul>
<% end_control %>

In other page, you use Image data of "home" page.
