Quotes of the day from previous years:

2005
Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe... No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time. ~ Winston Churchill

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt (born 30 January 1882)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
If the fires of freedom and civil liberties burn low in other lands they must be made brighter in our own. If in other lands the press and books and literature of all kinds are censored, we must redouble our efforts here to keep them free. If in other lands the eternal truths of the past are threatened by intolerance we must provide a safe place for their perpetuation. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

We do not see faith, hope, and charity as unattainable ideals, but we use them as stout supports of a nation fighting the fight for freedom in a modern civilization.
Faith — in the soundness of democracy in the midst of dictatorships.
Hope — renewed because we know so well the progress we have made.
Charity — in the true spirit of that grand old word. For charity literally translated from the original means love, the love that understands, that does not merely share the wealth of the giver, but in true sympathy and wisdom helps men to help themselves. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

2009
There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

Pissing in your shoes won't keep your feet warm for long. ~ Icelandic proverb

  • 0 ~ Kalki 23:58, 29 January 2006 (UTC) Amusing, but not really great "Quote of the day" material; no tie in for the date, and as I heard it in Newfoundland, rather than Iceland, the proverb actually was "boots" rather than "shoes".

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt (born January 30, 1882)

I wish I could keep war from all Nations; but that is beyond my power. I can at least make certain that no act of the United States helps to produce or to promote war. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

I like to think
(it has to be!)
of a cybernetic ecology
where we are free of our labors
and joined back to nature,
returned to our mammal
brothers and sisters,
and all watched over
by machines of loving grace.
~ Richard Brautigan (date of birth)

I have marched in many a battle host, but I have also planted seeds and reaped the harvest with my own hands. And I have learned there is greater honor in a field well plowed than in a field steeped in blood. ~ Lloyd Alexander (born January 30, 1924)

  • 4 Perhaps it might be shorted to There is greater honor in a field well plowed than in a field steeped in blood. Lyle 04:50, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 I prefer the shortened version but both versions are good. Zarbon 05:40, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 23:19, 29 January 2009 (UTC) 3 Kalki 21:21, 29 January 2009 (UTC) (with preference for the full version, but preferring another by FDR for this year.)

Is there not glory enough in living the days given to us? You should know there is adventure in simply being among those we love and the things we love, and beauty, too. ~ Lloyd Alexander (born January 30, 1924)
