Can I copy a quotation from a website and then give it out in handouts to the people? Would this be considered as making multiple copies?

Clearly it would be making multiple copies.

If in doubt - get permission from the copyright owner of the material you wish to quote - he/she would probably appreciate the publicity this would generate for their site and gladly give permission.
