Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004 
In war, you win or lose, live or die — and the difference is just an eyelash. ~ Douglas MacArthur
  • selected by Kalki
2005 
Everything seems an echo of something else. ~ Robert Penn Warren (born 24 April 1905)
  • selected by Kalki
2006 
The end of man is knowledge but there's one thing he can't know. He can't know whether knowledge will save him or kill him. He will be killed, all right, but he can't know whether he is killed because of the knowledge which he has got or because of the knowledge which he hasn't got and which if he had it would save him. ~ Robert Penn Warren (born 24 April 1905)
  • selected by Kalki
2007
I judge a man by his actions with men, much more than by his declarations Godwards. When I find him to be envious, carping, spiteful, hating the successes of others, and complaining that the world has never done enough for him, I am apt to doubt whether his humility before God will atone for his want of manliness. ~ Anthony Trollope
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
The poem... is a little myth of man's capacity of making life meaningful. And in the end, the poem is not a thing we see — it is, rather, a light by which we may see — and what we see is life. ~ Robert Penn Warren
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
The most powerful weapon to conquer the devil is humility. For, as he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it. ~ Vincent de Paul
  • proposed by Zarbon

Suggestions

There can only be peace when they will start to love their children more than they hate us. ~ Golda Meir

  • 3. Nominated for Israel Independence Day (Yom Ha'atzma'ut) 2007. LordAmeth 18:46, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 16:41, 23 April 2008 (UTC) 3 Kalki 11:11, 23 April 2007 (UTC) No longer associated with this date — Yom Ha'atzmaut, falls on 8 May this year, and there remains no definite source for this statement. In 2007 I ranked it 3 and remarked: leaning towards a four, but only for 2007, as the Gregorian date varies for Yom Ha'atzma'ut, which is based on the Hebrew calendar. It also fits in well with the previous QOTD by Shakespeare. But I would prefer to use one of the better sourced or more widely used variants:
Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.
or
Peace will come when the Arabs start to love their children more than they hate us.
Despite believing these sentiments probably originated with a statement of Meir somewhere, and liking this much in a more universal sense, of there being peace when people start loving their children more than they hate each other, there is not yet a definitely reliable source for this, and I am declining to use it for this date. Hopefully some definite source of Meir's exact statement can be found in the months ahead, and this can be used at some other date. ~ Kalki 21:50, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 Zarbon 00:12, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Life is so unlike theory. ~ Anthony Trollope (born 24 April 1815)

There is no such mischievous nonsense in all the world as equality. What men ought to want is liberty. ~ Anthony Trollope

I cannot hold with those who wish to put down the insignificant chatter of the world. ~ Anthony Trollope

So little time we live in Time,

To practice for Eternity.

...the basic principles of the military services are unchangeable. Courage and candor, obedience and comradeship, love of fatherland and loyalty to the State: these are ever the distinguishing characteristics of the soldier and sailor. Building character through intelligent training and education is always the first and greatest goal. ~ Erich Raeder

But optics sharp it needs, I ween,

As though there were a tie
And obligation to posterity.
We get them, bear them, breed, and nurse:
What has posterity done for us.
That we, lest they their rights should lose,
Should trust our necks to gripe of noose?
~ John Trumbull

You will find out that Charity is a heavy burden to carry, heavier than the kettle of soup and the full basket. But you will keep your gentleness and your smile. It is not enough to give soup and bread. This the rich can do. You are the servant of the poor, always smiling and good-humored. They are your masters, terribly sensitive and exacting master you will see. and the uglier and the dirtier they will be, the more unjust and insulting, the more love you must give them. It is only for your love alone that the poor will forgive you the bread you give to them. ~ Vincent de Paul

However great the work that God may achieve by an individual, he must not indulge in self-satisfaction. He ought rather to be all the more humbled, seeing himself merely as a tool which God has made use of. ~ Vincent de Paul

If you resolve to give up smoking, drinking and loving, you don't actually live longer; it just seems longer. ~ Clement Freud

  • 2 Kalki 00:15, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

In all things there must be order, but it must of such a kind as is possible to observe...to see a man burnt for doing as he thought right, harms the people, for this is a matter of conscience. ~ William the Silent

  • 3 Kalki 00:15, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

It is not possible for me to bear alone such labours and the burden of such weighty cares as press on me from hour to hour, without one man at my side to help me. I have not a soul to aid me in all my anxieties and toils. ~ William the Silent

For me nature is not a landscape, but the dynamism of visual forces - an event rather than an appearance. ~ Bridget Riley

  • 3 Kalki 00:15, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Do you see law and order? There is nothing but disorder, and instead of law there is the illusion of security. It is an illusion because it is built on a long history of injustices: racism, criminality, and the genocide of millions. Many people say it is insane to resist the system, but actually, it is insane not to. ~ Mumia Abu-Jamal

  • 2 Zarbon 23:45, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 00:15, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Politics is the art of making the people believe that they are in power, when in fact, they have none. ~ Mumia Abu-Jamal

  • 2 Zarbon 23:45, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 00:15, 24 April 2009 (UTC) such is conventional politics, and conventional political rhetoric, but there are notions of politics and rhetoric far beyond such tripe and such tropes.
