The problem with your importing code is exactly what I was pointing out.
Suppose I attach a required taxonomy to the "quotes" content type. You don't
set it. You don't validate it. Still the node is created.
Or if I use hook_form_alter() to add a "#required" to the title textfield so
it must be non-empty... you'll happily save the node without the title set.

You also bail out creating quotes from the first error you encounter while I
would like to import the next rows too.

I may have misread the code.

Now for your specific case, this may be ok, but for a generic node_import it
is not.
