    Not really. You need to reference it appropriately. Quotation marks may just indicate your own personal expression or even indicating some sort of necessary jargon or a descriptive concept that cannot be described with other words, so not necessarily. :)

    However, you may include a reference at the end of your article, without any quotations in the text, and that is even easier, and you are avoiding plagiarism.

    Yes, if you quote correctly and properly cite your source. You should always use quotation marks around a direct quote, and you should always cite your sources whether you use direct quotes or not.

    yes, but you must also include the source after the quote.. the name of the person who wrote or said it, the book where you read it, etc.

    Just putting quotes around something doesn't mean it's not plagiarism. Quotes just mean 'someone said this'. You have to make clear WHO said it. This can be with a footnote or an attribution or whatever.

      Should I put who said it in the main body of the paper or in the sources?

    Yes, because you're showing that it is someone else's work.

    Yes, it is, as long as you refer to the person or book from which the quotation was taken.
