You probably won't need to use footnotes and endnotes until upper secondary school or university, but it's worth knowing how they work so you can recognise them when you're reading.

I would advise against quoting people 'in-text' (ie: 'Not all those who wander are lost' (. Tolkien) -  without having a matching bibliographic entry saying where the quote came from. This matching of in-text references to a bibliographic entry is expected by our Harvard UTS system, unless the quote was verbal or otherwise regarded as 'personal communication' (ie: an email). It might be worth googling the quotes and seeing if you can come up with some source material. Another thing you'd normally want to provide with a quote is a page number (if the original quote was from a numbered page) - so being able to provide that would help you get your referencing up to the highest standard. Hope this helps!
