I'd skip the quote.

To me, quoting other people suggests that you're admitting that someone else has said something better than you're even willing to attempt (I don't mean that to be harsh, it's JMHO). The statement is about you, not about how witty or articulate someone else might be.

How about just working in a line about his view?  it has shaped me somewhat...

I would still probably keep it to a minimum. The bloded still sounds to me like, here's someone else's thoughts. I kind of agree. If you decide to include it, don't use it as an opening or closing line.
