Your post is copyright.  Works that you quote are either copyright by
the author, or the author's estate, or after 50 years from the death of
the author (USA) or 70 years (Europe).  You could only claim copyright
on a quotation if you had inherited the copyright thereto.  Consult your
public library, or ask any writers' or authors' organisation.

Please cease to claim copyright in works in the pubic domain. I will
complain EVERY TIME you do so.  As JRC has pointed out in another post,
your claims for various ideas are, as I understand him, based upon very
little or indeed any evidence.
