Now when it comes to finding Quotes online for your video you can easily find quotes to use from Instagram, Pinterest or many of such social sites
but when you are looking for free quotes you can use commercially the story changes
And that’s simply because the only way to have free access to use a quote for commercial opposes is through getting the rights of the quotes or using open source Quotes
The problem is many of the recent quotes of our time fall under the trade marked Quotes which means before you use them however you want, you will first need permission from the Trade mark holders or the owner
Most often that is not a viable track for anyone without money or connections
Which now leave us only with one option when it comes to using Quotes commercially
And that is with Open source, Open source is basically an intellectual material that has lost its copyright value and can be used however you want
You will be amazed at what you get in some of these open source websites if you actually use the right search engine to find the material
You can easily find open source or public domain websites, by just making a simple search on Google for public domain Quotes free for commercial use
And you will get different Public domains or opensource that contain Quotes in different niches and topic that you can use however you want including commercially

So in this Golden Quotes Public Domain website, you will get quotations of world famous authors, and artist that can be used without permission for any of your work again including commercial use.
As you can see here it basically says here is that, The quotes on this platform automatically fall on the public domain category and that is because the copyright of the quotes has expired
In basically in situation when the author has died for more than 70 years. This is the safest way to use quotes for commercial use.
In some countries this period is less than 70 years.
Now there are some few cases where the trade mark is till being used, in a case where someone bought it and is using it currently
In such a situation, you are not allowed to freely use it without proper permission from the respected body.
