Is it OK to post quotes on an inspirational hub and attribute them to the person?
For example, can you post a text box with a quote and just attribute it to the person, such as Ghandi, Dr. King, Thomas Moore, Kahlil Gibran, Thoreau? It would not be the only content on the hub, I am merely looking for short inspirational texts to break up my posts.
yes you can use that but i would suggest you to not overdo that ..because technically that's a copied content and copied content is not of so much worth to google...but you can quote ..For example if its a 1000 word hub then i guess you can put a quote by someone else in less than 50% woeds i guess that wont be a problem...I just think so ...hubpages do have a policy of removing unoriginal hubs so be carefull...Happy hubbing
If you are writing a hub and you want to use a quote that has relevance to that hub in order to make it complete, I don't think there should be a problem with you using it as long as you are giving the author of the quote credit.
oh definitely, any credit due should be posted, it would also educate the reader on whatever it is they're reading...
I've got a hub that is pretty much entirely quotes, and I use quotes very often, as often as possible. Quotes are outstanding sources to verify and prove your points as valid, logical, and relevant.
Quotes mostly mean: Wise words from successful people & it is very useful to add to your hub.
I suggest keep it quotes & not paragraphs.

I just wrote a quotes hub and it says duplicate content - which I can understand as probably 80 % of the hub is quotes copied and pasted from the internet. However is this normal for quotes hubs and do you ask for the duplicate content penalty to be removed or just carry on and ignore it!

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I wrote a hub about Mormons being Christians from an inside perspective. A few days after it was published it got moderated for duplication. However, the only hubs I can find on the subject have the exact OPPOSITE...

I hope someone can help before I have to throw away a hub that took me 6 hours to produce. It is marked "unpublished for duplication" for no reason that I can discern. Every single word and sentence came from my own head and has never been published online (or anywhere else for that...

I would love to hear a good inspirational quote from my fellow hubbers to build up my confidence. Please share some fine quotes which will motivate anyone running low due to bad performance or on the verge of failure. Hurry up please.

I am doing a 20 "such and such" quotes about "such and such" hub. I even went back in after they marked it duplicate and made sure 400 of the words are my words, even though I know people googling it aren't going to want to read my words and are instead just going to be coming...

I am about to publish a hub that contains a large number of quotes. I was thinking of writing those quotes in italics so they look different from the bulk of the text. Is there a better way? Could the "code" capsule be useful here? Perhaps putting them in colored text boxes on the right...
