  • the quotation is being used in a commentary or reference work.
  • any of the four criteria stated below are not met.


Permission is not required if all of the following apply. The quotations:

  1. collectively consist of less than 750 words; and
  2. are not greater than 25% of the total number of words in the work in which used; and
  3. do not comprise an entire chapter from the book; and
  4. the name of the book, namely “A Course of Love,“Choose Only Love,” or “The Age of the Heart,” appears along with the location from which the quotation is taken (chapter, section, page number).
