Is it fair use to quote from a speech in a book?


I'm working on a book and want to include some quotes by historical figures and authors. I know some quotes are fair use but I was wondering whether quotes from history are considered fair use. I'm trying to figure out what is legal to use and how to determine if its fair use.

    I agree with Carbqueen. Give credit to your source. Keeping it to excerpts is best when it comes to speeches. If in doubt, send the speaker or source an email asking permission.
