How do you express someone's quoted words? For example if you want to say: "My mother said, '....' " or "He used to say, '...' "

As Take explained, you can use "と言う”(and variations of 言う, including honorific forms). You can also use "って言う" (and variations of 言う again).

Hello. Please let me answer your question. Does it make sense to you?" My mother said, '....' = 私の母は、'....'と言っていた。 He used to say, '...' = 彼は、よく '....'と言っていた。
