A man talking sense to himself is no madder than a man talking nonsense not to himself.
Tom Stoppard (1937- )

No one is exempt from talking nonsense; the great misfortune is to do it solemnly.
Anthony de Mello (1931-1987)

Nonsense wakes up the brain cells and it helps develop a sense of humour, which is awfully important in this day and age.
Dr Seuss (1904-1991)

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.)
