[texhax] foreign fonts

I'm a bit confused about the handling of foreign fonts whether via  
babel or other means.

Let me be specific.  Suppose in a work (in this case, documentstyle 
{book}, but I imagine this is irrelevant) I want to include some  
quotations or reference titles in languages with different alphabets,  
like Greek or Russian.  I presume I need to put in the preface  
something like
\usepackage[greek, russian, english(?)]{babel}.  How do I tell LaTeX  
that the default language is English, and how do I indicate (and  
delimit) the text in one of the other fonts?

I wanted to include a quotation in greek, but the \usepackage[greek] 
{babel} command set the whole work in greek, while \textgreek{} was  
not recognized by the program.  I also foresee similar problems with  
cyrillic and, possibly, Chinese or Japanese.
