There are exceptions, usually
a short 
sentence like that won't be considered to be of significant value, you can
people to illustrate a point, a viewpoint, to give examples of what a book or 
article is about, etc., provided you give credit for the quotes
Fair use of a copyrighted work for purposes of criticism, comment, reporting, 
teaching, scholarship, or research is not an infringement.  In the USA they 
consider the following factors:
Purpose (profit vs.nonprofit)
The nature of the work
The percentage of the portion used in relation to the entire work
The effect of the use on the potential value of the work.
