Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
They serve so that we don't have to. They offer to give up their lives so that we can be free. It is, remarkably, their gift to us. And all they ask for in return is that we never send them into harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary. Will they ever trust us again? ~ Michael Moore

Hatred, as well as love, renders its votaries credulous. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau (born 28 June 1712)

To renounce liberty is to renounce being a man, to surrender the rights of humanity and even its duties. For him who renounces everything no indemnity is possible. Such a renunciation is incompatible with man's nature; to remove all liberty from his will is to remove all morality from his acts. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau

2008
Man is born free; and everywhere he is in chains. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
  • proposed by Zarbon
2009
Never dream of forcing men into the ways of God. Think yourself, and let think. Use no constraint in matters of religion. Even those who are farthest out of the way never compel to come in by any other means than reason, truth, and love. ~ John Wesley

All I really want is to provide a hard-working man in the blouse business with a method of expressing himself; if he likes a tune, he can whistle it, and it will make his life happier. ~ Richard Rodgers, born on June 28th

We don't have a Rodgers page yet (hardly surprising); this quotation is the only Rodgers in my Simpson's (number 9614).
