 "The right of one author to quote another has long been recognized by copyright law, provided that the quotation is only a small portion of the original and that credit is given."  "One paragraph from a book or long article is certainly fair use, but one from a three-paragraph article would not be.  In the latter case, reword to avoid outright copying and give credit to the source."  (From The Copyright Handbook, State University of New York at Albany (Sept. 1987), p. 6.
