Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us ~ Bill Watterson
  • selected by Kalki
2005
I am not so enamored of my own opinions that I disregard what others may think of them. I am aware that a philosopher's ideas are not subject to the judgement of ordinary persons, because it is his endeavor to seek the truth in all things, to the extent permitted to human reason by God. Yet I hold that completely erroneous views should be shunned. ~ Nicolaus Copernicus (born 19 February 1473)

External success has to do with people who may see me as a model, or an example, or a representative. As much as I may dislike or want to reject that responsibility, this is something that comes with public success. It's important to give others a sense of hope that it is possible and you can come from really different places in the world and find your own place in the world that's unique for yourself. ~ Amy Tan (born 19 February 1952)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

~ Paul Simon ~
(Lyrics to "The Sound of Silence" — written on this day in 1964)

Now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the grave,
I've been kissed by a rose on the grave.

~ Seal ~

2009
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said "The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sound of silence."

~ Paul Simon ~ (song written on this day in 1964)

Suggestions

"You're a religious man. You believe in God and life after death. I also believe. When we come to the other world and meet the millions of Jews who died in the camps and they ask us, 'What have you done?' there will be many answers. You will say, 'I became a jeweler.' Another will say, 'I smuggled coffee and American cigarettes.' Still another will say, 'I built houses,' but I will say, 'I didn't forget you.' ~ Simon Wiesenthal (He was an honorary knighthood)

  • proposed by user Sir John Alexander Macdonald
  • 2 Kalki 23:32, 20 February 2006 (UTC) but not a very strong date tie-in, and I think there are many better quotes by Wiesenthal
  • 1 Zarbon 22:29, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

It is because I had so much joy that I came to have so much hate. ~ Amy Tan

  • 2 because both joy and hate are but human emotions. Zarbon 05:17, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

  • 2 if this is shortened to "It's important to give others a sense of hope that it is possible and you can come from really different places in the world and find your own place in the world that's unique for yourself." - Zarbon 05:39, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

People have such terrible assumptions about ghosts — you know, phantoms that haunt you, that make you scared, that turn the house upside down. Yin people are not in our living presence but are around, and kind of guide you to insights. Like in Las Vegas when the bells go off, telling you you've hit the jackpot. Yin people ring the bells, saying, "Pay attention." And you say, "Oh, I see now." Yet I'm a fairly skeptical person. I'm educated, I'm reasonably sane, and I know that this subject is fodder for ridicule. ... To write the book, I had to put that aside. As with any book. I go through the anxiety, "What will people think of me for writing something like this?" But ultimately, I have to write what I have to write about, including the question of life continuing beyond our ordinary senses. ~ Amy Tan

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave.
Ooh, the more I get of you,
Stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the grave.

~ Seal ~

  • 1 and this is one of my all-time favorite songs but still not powerful enough as qotd. - Zarbon 05:39, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
