When I looked at the page, I assumed it to be material written by you.
If it is indeed a quote, you need to acknowledge the copyright owner,
either by a credit line underneath in teeny tiny type or by an
acknowledgements page that gives the details of each copyright holder
and then a list of page numbers on which their material appears.
If you don't acknowledge the owner, then, ahem officer, we appear to be
at a crime scene and the perp is a plagiarist. But if you revise or
reword it substantially, then you have a paraphrased sidebar, the
copyright is yours, and the owner of the original phrase does not have
to be acknowledged.
As a way of indicating a sidebar, I like the brown colour! I'd do
something about those deep indents, though, especially if you have some
one- or two-line paras.
