Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
There is no sincerer love than the love of food. ~ George Bernard Shaw
  • selected by Poor Yorick
2005
See, I write jokes for a living, man. I sit in my hotel at night and think of something that's funny and then I go get a pen and write 'em down. Or, if the pen's too far away, I have to convince myself that what I thought of ain't funny. ~ Mitch Hedberg (recent death)
  • selected by Kalki
2006
Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent. ~ Isaac Asimov (died 6 April 1992)
  • selected by Kalki
2007
I am less concerned with expressing the motions of the soul and mind than to render visible, so to speak, the inner flashes of intuition which have something divine in their apparent insignificance and reveal magic, even divine horizons, when they are transposed into the marvellous effects of pure plastic art. ~ Gustave Moreau
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
I have never looked for dream in reality or reality in dream. I have allowed my imagination free play, and I have not been led astray by it. ~ Gustave Moreau
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Make our pleasant earth below
Like the heaven above.

~ Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney ~

Suggestions

No one could have less faith in the absolute and definitive importance of the work created by man, because I believe that this world is nothing but a dream... ~ Gustave Moreau

I believe neither in what I touch nor what I see. I only believe in what I do not see, and solely in what I feel. ~ Gustave Moreau

  • 3 because this quote makes one think. If all the physical and sight apparent is an illusion, it's quite frankly a nice parallel illusion drawn here by Moreau. Zarbon 16:06, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 02:01, 5 April 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.

Thus the little minutes,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.

~ Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney ~

If we don't play God, who will? ~ James D. Watson

  • 3 Zarbon 00:37, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 02:01, 5 April 2009 (UTC) there is ambiguity and significance here beyond his intentions.
  • 2 InvisibleSun 20:23, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

If nature had produced spontaneously all the objects which we desire, and in sufficient abundance for the desires of all, there would have been no source of dispute or of injury among men; nor would any man have possessed the means of ever acquiring authority over another. ~ James Mill

Whenever the powers of government are placed in any hands other than those of the community, whether those of one man, of a few, or of several, those principles of human nature which imply that government is at all necessary, imply that those persons will make use of them to defeat the very end for which government exists. ~ James Mill
