I admit I can not make such claims.

Yeah, there's no way anyone owns everything that's located in a library, so take THAT Mr. Sacramento/Saccharine/Sacagawea!

You gonna read a dictionary cover-to-cover? That's absurd.
I'd say there's even grey area in this, particularly in politics and political writing. If you can find half a thought from an opponent, and take it completely out of context, it is possible to make it sound like your opponent agrees with you. It ain't right, but for some reason in certain circles (*cough* TEA PALIN *cough* TEA-PUBLICANS*cough* CHENEY *COUGH*), it is widely accepted. Not that I'm into politics or anything...

That depends on what the definition of "is" is, smart guy.

Knock off the politics, please.

Re: Is it acceptable to quote/cite books you do not own?

What if you bought, then resold the book? Could you make some recordings at the time (various quotes) and play them later?

Books in the library are in the public domain, can we quote all of them?

If I quote Dezie, is there an implication of ownership? No one could "own" Dezie!
