Why do I use so many quotes in articles?

In writing about an era ±100 years in the past, it shows the flavor of ideas and language of the times. In so many ways, the newspapers of that bygone time, and the people they wrote about, were much more colorful and less, shall we say, politically correct, than today. Through direct quotes, that can best be shown, rather than told.
