Hello. I am a photographer and I was wondering if it is legal for me to sell prints of my original photos with quotes, created by another person, written on them. Thanks for the help.

It sounds like you're the owner of the copyright in the portion of the work that's the visual image and the other person is the owner of copyright in the portion of the work that's text ... provided that the text is original and lengthy enough to be protectible.
If that's so, then you'd need permission from the other person to reproduce his/her copyrighted text.
