Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
In the winter season, for seven days of calm, Alcyone broods over her nest on the surface of the waters while the sea-waves are quiet. Through this time Aeolus keeps his winds at home, and ocean is smooth for his descendants’ sake. ~ Ovid

2005
The tyrant grinds down his slaves and they don't turn against him, they crush those beneath them. ~ Emily Brontë (died 19 December 1848)
  • proposed by UDScott
2006
It is wrong to expect a reward for your struggles. The reward is the act of struggle itself, not what you win. Even though you can't expect to defeat the absurdity of the world, you must make that attempt. That's morality, that's religion. That's art. That's life. ~ Phil Ochs (born 19 December 1940)

2007
In such an ugly time the true protest is beauty. ~ Phil Ochs

After the final no there comes a yes
And on that yes the future world depends.

And the evil is done in hopes that evil surrenders
but the deeds of the devil are burned too deep in the embers
and a world of hunger in vengeance will always remember
So please be reassured, we seek no wider war,
we seek no wider war.
~ Phil Ochs

And I won't be laughing at the lies when I'm gone
And I can't question how or when or why when I'm gone
Can't live proud enough to die when I'm gone
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here.
~ Phil Ochs

"Business!" cried the Ghost, wringing its hands again. "Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!" ~ Charles Dickens in A Christmas Carol (first published on this date in 1843)

  • 4 Kalki (talk · contributions) 01:44, 13 December 2009 (UTC) * 3 Kalki 23:11, 6 February 2008 (UTC) but for 2009 am willing to shift my 4 to one of the verses related to Hanukkah below, if support gets within range for using them.
  • 2 Zarbon 19:44, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

I feel like a spinning top or a dreidel.
The spinning don't stop when you leave the cradle.
You just slow down.

~ Don McLean ~ song lyrics related to Hanukkah, for last day of Hanukkah 2009.
