Default Re: Use of famous saying within the dialogue

I want to use a common/famous saying/quotation within the dialogue such as, "Christmas will always be as long as we stand heart to heart and hand in hand." (By Dr. Seuss, fyi)

Do I need to set it off in some special way? Quotation marks? Single, double? Do I have to give attribution because some of the sayings were not given an author on google?

What about if I have one character start it and another finish it as in:

Tom
Christmas will always be as long as we stand--

Dick
Heart to heart and hand in hand.

Is that appropriate?

Thanks.

You just put in quotes, bro.
