What is the copyright law concerning the use of quotes and sayings?


If I'm writing a book and need to use a quote or saying from a famous person or another author, do I have to ask for permission to use it?

    Thanks, Pamela. I do that too but am wondering if that is enough to protect ourselves against infringing copyrights.

    Thanks for the information. I understand that if the person is deceased for more than 70 years, the copyright is void. Don't know if that is accurate information.

    Thanks, good to know that. I'll make sure to cite source, of course.
