Another way is: C-M-% ^\|$ RET " RET
(i.e. replace all beginning of line and all end of line by a
double-quote character)

Yet another way would be using magnars' multiple-cursors-mode (available
from your favourite ELPA repository) : M-x mc/edit-lines (I have it bound to
"C-c e"), then do: " C-e " RET.

The added advantage of this solution is that it makes you feel extremely
powerful...

HTH,
