Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts... ~ William Shakespeare in As You Like It
  • selected by Kalki
2005
When are you people going to learn? It's not about who's right or wrong. No denomination's nailed it yet, and they never will because they're all too self-righteous to realize that it doesn't matter what you have faith in, just that you have faith. Your hearts are in the right place, but your brains need to wake up. I have issues with anyone who treats faith as a burden instead of a blessing. You people don't celebrate your faith; you mourn it. ~ "Serendipity" in Dogma, by Kevin Smith
  • proposed by MosheZadka
2006
Ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have. ~ James Baldwin (born 2 August 1924)
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2007
The moment always comes when, having collected one's ideas, certain images, an intuition of a certain kind of development — whether psychological or material — one must pass on to the actual realization. ~ Michelangelo Antonioni (recent death)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
Now, it is true that the nature of society is to create, among its citizens, an illusion of safety; but it is also absolutely true that the safety is always necessarily an illusion. Artists are here to disturb the peace. ~ James Baldwin
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
Religious feeling is as much a verity as any other part of human consciousness; and against it, on the subjective side, the waves of science beat in vain. ~ John Tyndall
  • proposed by Zarbon
2010

  • 0 Zarbon 14:58, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Confronted with the impossibility of remaining faithful to one’s beliefs, and the equal impossibility of becoming free of them, one can be driven to the most inhuman excesses. ~ James Baldwin (born 2 August 1924)

I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain. ~ James Baldwin

  • 2 Zarbon 14:58, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Words like "freedom," "justice," "democracy" are not common concepts; on the contrary, they are rare. People are not born knowing what these are. It takes enormous and, above all, individual effort to arrive at the respect for other people that these words imply. ~ James Baldwin

Nobody is more dangerous than he who imagines himself pure in heart; for his purity, by definition, is unassailable. ~ James Baldwin

  • 1 Zarbon 14:58, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

All art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique. All artists, if they are to survive, are forced, at last, to tell the whole story, to vomit the anguish up. ~ James Baldwin (born 2 August 1924)

  • 1 Zarbon 14:58, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

The bones of our ancestors, and the stones of their works, are everywhere. Our liberties were won in wars and revolutions so terrible that we do not fear our governors: they fear us. Our children giggle and eat ice-cream in the palaces of past rulers. We snap our fingers at kings. We laugh at popes. When we have built up tyrants, we have brought them down. ~ Ken MacLeod

Life is a wave, which in no two consecutive moments of its existence is composed of the same particles. ~ John Tyndall

It is as fatal as it is cowardly to blink facts because they are not to our taste. ~ John Tyndall

They are not long, the days of wine and roses;
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream. ~ Ernest Dowson

Money, it turned out, was exactly like sex. You thought of nothing else if you didn't have it and thought of other things if you did. ~ James Baldwin

  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:15, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

If the concept of God has any validity or any use, it can only be to make us larger, freer, and more loving. If God cannot do this, then it is time we got rid of Him. ~ James Baldwin

  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:15, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

It's no credit to this enormously rich country that there are more oppressive, less decent governments elsewhere. We claim superiority of our institutions. We ought to live up to our own standards, not use misery elsewhere as an endless source of self-gratification and justification. ~ James Baldwin

  • 2 Zarbon 03:46, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 11:10, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:15, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have. ~ James Baldwin

Anyone who has ever struggled with poverty knows how extremely expensive it is to be poor. ~ James Baldwin

  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:15, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

One writes out of one thing only — one's own experience. Everything depends on how relentlessly one forces from this experience the last drop, sweet or bitter, it can possibly give. This is the only real concern of the artist, to recreate out of the disorder of life that order which is art. ~ James Baldwin
