Quoting Research Studies

If I've read research studies and want to quote them on my website, such as:  
•Getting a new customer costs 5 to 10 times more money than keeping the one you already have.  
Are these copyrighted and must I gain permission 1st or can I refer to them without 1st obtaining permission?

To the extent the quotations are merely statements of fact, they are not effectively covered by copyright.  The greater the creative aspect of the quotation, the more copyright protection it will be afforded.  In any event, the underlying facts are never protected by copyright.
