Id like to use the quote “Dogs are not our whole life, but

This answer was rated:

I’d like to use the quote “Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole”, that has been attributed to the late Roger Caras ( a tee shirt or bumper sticker.

I would also like to use Edith Wharton's quote "My little dog - a heartbeat at my feet" in the same way.

The items will be sold to raise funds for a research project into dog behavior issues.

From my web research, I believe that quotes like this are not subject to copyright, but I would like to make sure. Could you please advise if it is legal to use this quote in this way, or if I should chase up the estate of the late Mr Caras and Ms Wharton for permission?

Thank you
