For quotes, it might help to include a link back to the source where you found the quote in the first place.
As for photos, you cannot re-use a photo without permission unless, as stated elsewhere here, it’s specifically licensed as Public Domain or Creative Commons. You can find numerous Creative Commons photos on Flickr.
One other freebie: you can freely use any photos found on federal government websites, such as ours. Since taxpayers paid for them, taxpayers own them.
But the same does not apply to .edu websites, even if the university is a public university. Unless otherwise noted, .edu photos are copyrighted by the regents or trustees of the university.
