Just one quote by Brander Matthews
James Brander Matthews (February 21, 1852 in New Orleans - March 31, 1929 in New York City), was a U.S. writer and educator. Matthews was the first U.S. professor of dramatic literature. He graduated from Columbia College in 1871, where he was a member of the Philolexian Society and St. Anthony Hall, and from Columbia Law School in 1873, but turned to a literary career. From 1892 to 1900 he was professor of literature at Columbia, and thereafter held the chair of dramatic literature. His influence was such that a popular pun claimed that an entire generation had been 'brandered by the same Matthews'.
A gentleman need not know Latin, but he should at least have forgotten it. [+]

Section 30(1) of the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 allows “fair dealing” with a copyright work for the purpose of criticism or review, provided that it is accompanied by a sufficient acknowledgement. Under the fair use doctrine of the U.S. copyright statute, it is permissible to use limited portions of a work including quotes, for purposes such as commentary, criticism, news reporting, and scholarly reports. There are no legal rules permitting the use of a specific number of words, a certain number of musical notes, or percentages of a work. Whether a particular use qualifies as fair use depends on all the circumstances. See Circular 21 and FL 102. (From the US Copyright Office FAQ.)
