Are Famous Quotes Protected?

Hi all,
I was interested in starting my own business in promoting famous quotes.  (from those dead and alive)  I was just wondering if anyone knew the boundaries of quotes.  I would like to sell material with quotes on them (i.e. letter heads), however, I don't want step on anyone's toes.
Does anyone know if this is legal?  I've seen things like notepads and calendars and stuff with quotes on them, but I wonder if they had to get permission from EACH person who stated those quotes.
Any idea?
Any advice given will be greatly appreciated.

I was also wondering about the use of famous quotes on products for sale. Did you ever find any more info on this?
Kindest regards,
