  • Can you use quotes without issue?

    Can you be sued from using some random quote in your script somebody tells you or you read on the internet if you don't know the author? Like if your character says a quote in general to another character, etc.

    I've found many people who credit themselves as the author of the quotes I hear or see online actually aren't the author in a lot of cases. Just wondering if this is something I should even care about.
    One must be fearless and tenacious when pursuing their dreams. If you don't, regret will be your reward.
