Quotes of the day from previous years:

2003
Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods. ~ Aristotle
  • selected by Nanobug
2004
Called or uncalled, God is there. ~ Ancient proverb, said to be Spartan, popularized by Carl Jung
  • selected by Kalki
    This is a translation of the Latin phrase Vocatus atque non vocatus, Deus aderit. which Jung used as an inscription on his house, and also on his tomb. It is also commonly translated as " Called or uncalled, God is present." or sometimes "Invoked or not invoked...", "Bidden or unbidden", or "Summoned or not summoned..." God is present.
2005
From without, no wonderful effect is wrought within ourselves, unless some interior, responding wonder meets it. That the starry vault shall surcharge the heart with all rapturous marvelings, is only because we ourselves are greater miracles, and superber trophies than all the stars in universal space. ~ Herman Melville (born 1 August 1819)
  • proposed by Kalki
2006
And now we meet in an abandoned studio
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago
And you remember the jingles used to go
Oh, oh — You were the first one.
Oh, oh — You were the last one.
Video killed the radio star.

~ The Buggles ~
  • proposed by Jeff Q
2007
People ask what are my intentions with my films — my aims. It is a difficult and dangerous question, and I usually give an evasive answer: I try to tell the truth about the human condition, the truth as I see it. ~ Ingmar Bergman (recent death)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
All visible objects, man, are but as pasteboard masks. But in each event — in the living act, the undoubted deed — there, some unknown but still reasoning thing puts forth the mouldings of its features from behind the unreasoning mask. ~ Herman Melville in Moby-Dick (born 1 August 1819)
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
In this world of lies, Truth is forced to fly like a sacred white doe in the woodlands; and only by cunning glimpses will she reveal herself, as in Shakespeare and other masters of the great Art of Telling the Truth, — even though it be covertly, and by snatches. ~ Herman Melville
  • proposed by Kalki
2010

They took the credit for your second symphony.
Rewritten by machine and new technology,
and now I understand the problems you can see.

  • 1 Kalki 00:29, 2 August 2008 (UTC) not as memorable as the chorus of the song, which has already been used.

Genius, all over the world, stands hand in hand, and one shock of recognition runs the whole circle round. ~ Herman Melville (born 1 August 1819)

Are there no Moravians in the Moon, that not a missionary has yet visited this poor pagan planet of ours, to civilise civilisation and christianise Christendom? ~ Herman Melville (born 1 August 1819)

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. ~ Michael Badnarik

  • 3 Zarbon 03:23, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 0 Kalki 19:22, 1 June 2009 (UTC) because this is apparently a misattribution, at least in terms of authorship. 1 Kalki 11:00, 31 July 2008 (UTC) I would rank this higher, but I don't believe this actually originates with Badnarik.
  • PhR 18:36, 1 June 2009 (UTC)NPOV prevents me from commenting on Badnarik. Check http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Rita_Mae_Brown right here.
You seem to assert that this did not originate with Badnarik, which is fairly well evidenced, but you have numerically ranked this high, by our system in which the highest favor is 4, and the lowest is 0. ~ Kalki 19:21, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
I didn't mean to rank the quote at all, Kalki, so I just removed the ranking. Hope it's ok. --PhR 00:11, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Allow me to dispel a myth. People in the Middle East do not hate us for our freedom. They do not hate us for our lifestyle. They hate us because we have spent many years attempting to force them to emulate our lifestyle. ~ Michael Badnarik

The question is: How bad do things have to get before you will do something about it? Where is your line in the sand? If you don't enforce the constitutional limitations on your government very soon, you are likely to find out what World War III will be like. I'm quite sure that I will never experience that war - because dissidents are always the first to be eliminated. ~ Michael Badnarik

  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:48, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

I am a very peaceful man. I love people and am known for my gregarious personality. However, if you try to confiscate my guns, I will feel compelled to give them to you, one bullet at a time. ~ Michael Badnarik

I have no objection to any person’s religion, be it what it may, so long as that person does not kill or insult any other person, because that other person don’t believe it also.~ Herman Melville, in Moby-Dick

  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:48, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Silence is the general consecration of the universe. Silence is the invisible laying on of the Divine Pontiff's hands upon the world. Silence is at once the most harmless and the most awful thing in all nature. It speaks of the Reserved Forces of Fate. Silence is the only Voice of our God. ~ Herman Melville

  • 3 Kalki 07:29, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:48, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

There is sorrow in the world, but goodness too; and goodness that is not greenness, either, no more than sorrow is. ~ Herman Melville, in The Confidence-Man

  • 3 Kalki 07:29, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:48, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

It is — or seems to be — a wise sort of thing, to realise that all that happens to a man in this life is only by way of joke, especially his misfortunes, if he have them. And it is also worth bearing in mind, that the joke is passed round pretty liberally & impartially, so that not very many are entitled to fancy that they in particular are getting the worst of it. ~ Herman Melville

  • 3 Kalki 07:29, 28 July 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.
