Are we allowed to use quotes or definitions of words in our hubs or do we have to put everything into our own words ?
How do we promote them so we can get comments on our hubs ?
If you've got a LOT of original content and you quote a sentence or even a paragraph, it may not trip the duplicate filter.
But there are other ways that a person can display a quote, such as making it into an image.
That's the million dollar (or in most cases, the hundred dollar) question! It will depend entirely on your choice of topic and your audience. There is no one size fits all solution that is going to result in major traffic. (Except for writing original content about things that people are interested in and search engines indexing you and ranking you highly.)
"Fair Use" rules allow you to use a passage of text from another work if it is germane to a point. In academic writing you would give credit to the original writer, and in a list of works cited you would give source information, publisher, dates, etc. below. Copyright is squishy stuff, and what constitutes "fair use" as opposed to "plagiarism" is not clearly defined anywhere (hence the need for lawyers.)
Academia has set precents for such things and there are style guides aplenty out there for you to use (MLA, APA, Chicago Manual of Style to name a few).
Bottom line, if you are sticking to a quote or brief passage you're fine (brief being relative to the length of the whole, etc.).
There is a decent explanation of Fair Use here: http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html

I have to admit that I did not do a lot of research on Hubpages before joining, but since that time I had read countless articles on it along with the Google Panda updates. Of particular interest to me was the demise of Squidoo and the parallels to Hubpages. Seems to me that the...
