Faith is a continuum, and we each fall on that line where we may. By attempting to rigidly classify ethereal concepts like faith, we end up debating semantics to the point where we entirely miss the obvious — that is, that we are all trying to decipher life's big mysteries, and we're each following our own paths of enlightenment. ~ Dan Brown (author of The Da Vinci Code; film adaptation released worldwide on 19 May 2006)

If the Tiger does not stop fighting the Elephant, the Elephant will die of exhaustion. ~ Ho Chi Minh (born May 19)

  • 4 because this is so true. A battle can be won by tiring the greater enemy into defeat. I love this quote wholeheartedly. It sets the idea of david and goliath into an understandable and moral realm. Zarbon 06:23, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Comment: Although Atatürk's birthdate is unknown, this is a good day for posting quotes for him because it has become the Turkish national holiday in his honor. - InvisibleSun 09:32, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment: But I could've sworn he's born on May 19th. Maybe it's not listed on the wikipedia pages, but it is listed in numerous other sites, for reference purposes. Zarbon 16:52, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
His birthdate isn't listed on Wikipedia because they evidently concluded, based on the information shown here, that his birthdate could not be determined. - InvisibleSun 21:40, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

It struck me that the movies had spent more than half a century saying, "They lived happily ever after" and the following quarter century warning that they'll be lucky to make it through the weekend. Possibly now we are entering a third era, in which the movies will be sounding a note of cautious optimism: You know, it just might work. ~ Nora Ephron (born May 19, 1941)

I wish to live because life has within it that which is good, that which is beautiful and that which is love. Therefore, since I have known all of these things, I have found them to be reason enough and — I wish to live. Moreover, because this is so, I wish others to live for generations and generations and generations. ~ Lorraine Hansberry (born May 19, 1930)
