What are the rules about quoting from books?


I have quoted short passages, (in full, exactly, with quotation marks), from books, given author and title, promoted book with Amazon. However, I've been told by a friend in publishing that I should apply to the publisher even to quote a paragraph, and possibly pay a fee. Is this true?
