SB4- Theme Quotes

this Sandbox required that i put together a selection of quotes representing the theme for my novella, including one Bible verse and one quote in my own words.  is it just me, or does it seem just plain wrong to quote oneself amongst C.S. Lewis, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Winston Churchill?? but what must be done, must be done.
