Attribution is always a good idea. If a character is speaking and the quotation is really well known ("To be or not to be," for example), you can get away without attribution. Titles of books, articles, etc., also use or play on other people's words without attribution (although a note on the copyright page doesn't hurt, unless the source of the quotation is general knowledge).


In nonfiction, attribution is essential. Hence the copious foot-/endnotes that clutter up academic tomes.
