Quotes of the day from previous years:

2003
Dare to be naïve. ~ Buckminster Fuller
  • selected by Nanobug
2004
I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved. I am not sure that you are of the same mind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of light and speech, and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear. ~ George Eliot
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give. ~ David O. McKay, (born 8 September 1873)

Soldiers are citizens of death's grey land,
Drawing no dividend from time's to-morrows.
In the great hour of destiny they stand,
Each with his feuds, and jealousies, and sorrows.

~ Siegfried Sassoon (born September 8, 1886)

What voice revisits me this night? What face
To my heart’s room returns?
From the perpetual silence where the grace
Of human sainthood burns
Hastes he once more to harmonise and heal?
I know not. Only I feel
His influence undiminished
And his life’s work, in me and many, unfinished.

~ Siegfried Sassoon ~
  • proposed by Kalki

And something to fear
And I try so hard to keep it inside
So no one can hear.

Make it go twice the speed of you and me
