When you quote copyrighted material in your own work, it’s not enough to give due acknowledgment in the endnotes or footnotes. You also need to be sure you haven’t infringed on the author’s copyright.

- If you feel that some of your quotes are not Fair Use, you need to apply for permission to use the material. Here is a typical procedure, outlined by a publisher for requesting “excerpt and anthology” permissions: http://www.heartinkpress.com/excerpt.html
