I began mine with the statement "I believe theatre is magical" and went on to explain why, and then did the rest of my statement - and it worked! I got two offers off the back of it and invitation to three interviews/auditions

Wrong, quotes are a way of relating to a specific subject, showing you have an interest in 'popular or important' people in the area your going into, and if you reference to it well enough it can show a great amount of how much of your own 'outside reading' about the subject you do, it is a great way to show you have read up a lot on a particular element of the degree, a particular person or a particular book.
Quotes aren't meant to tell them 'oh ye i love this subject'. They are there, if used properly, for the reasons i've said above.
