Quotes of the day from previous years:

2003
The barge she sat in, like a burnishd throne, burnd on the water; the poop was beaten gold, purple the sails, and so perfumed, that the winds were love-sick with them, the oars were silver, which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made the water which they beat to follow faster, as amorous of their strokes. For her own person, it beggard all description ~ "Enobarbus" on Cleapatra, in Antony and Cleopatra Act II sc. ii by William Shakespeare
  • selected by Nanobug
2004
No man who has once heartily and wholly laughed can be altogether irreclaimably bad. ~ Thomas Carlyle
  • selected by Kalki
2005
If you want the world to know
We won't let hatred grow
Put a little love in your heart.

~ Jackie DeShannon ~ (born 21 August 1944)
  • proposed by Kalki
2006
Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression and vileness, and enjoy it to the full. ~ Leon Trotsky (died 21 August 1940)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
Another day goes by
Still the children cry
Put a little love in your heart.

~ Jackie DeShannon ~

2008
A means can be justified only by its end. But the end in its turn needs to be justified. ~ Leon Trotsky

2009
People ask me... "What do you still bring from Hawaii? How does it affect your character, how does it affect your politics?" I try to explain to them something about the Aloha Spirit. I try to explain to them this basic idea that we all have obligations to each other, that we're not alone, that if we see somebody who's in need we should help... that we look out for one another, that we deal with each other with courtesy and respect, and most importantly, that when you come from Hawaii, you start understanding that what's on the surface, what people look like — that doesn't determine who they are.
And that the power and strength of diversity, the ability of people from everywhere ... whether they're black or white, whether they're Japanese-Americans or Korean-Americans or Filipino-Americans or whatever they are, they are just Americans, that all of us can work together and all of us can join together to create a better country.
And it's that spirit, that I'm absolutely convinced, is what America is looking for right now. ~ Barack Obama (A quote of a statement about Hawaii, using one of the most famous of Hawaiian words, made by the first US president to be born in Hawaii, for the 50th anniversary of the Statehood of the 50th US State, "The Aloha State.")

Suggestions

Until the Yom Kippur War, in 1973, until then Israel didn't have a chance but to fight for her life. We were attacked five times, outgunned, outnumbered, on a small piece of land, and our main challenge was to remain alive. ~ Shimon Peres (b. August 21, 1923)

  • Comment: It's not my fault Peres's birthday is one day after the finalization of the Oslo Accords! :) ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 07:04, 20 July 2005 (UTC)
  • 3, but I'd say use 1 or the other but not both, we shouldn't have 2 days relating to Israel v Palestine.

Socialism needs democracy like the human body needs oxygen. ~ Leon Trotsky, died this day.

Let a man find himself, in distinction from others, on top of two wheels with a chain—at least in a poor country like Russia—and his vanity begins to swell out like his tires. In America it takes an automobile to produce this effect. ~ Leon Trotsky, died this day

Hawaii has always been a very pivotal role in the Pacific. It is in the Pacific. It is a part of the United States that is an island that is right here. ~ Vice President Dan Quayle; Hawaii became the 50th U.S. state on 21 August 1959

  • 1 Kalki 16:58, 20 August 2006 (UTC) If we do honor Hawaii, perhaps on the 50th anniversary of its statehood in 2009, I would hope it would be with something more than Quayle's fumblings.

Bureaucracy and social harmony are inversely proportional to each other. ~ Leon Trotsky

I can feel a something pounding in my brain
Just any time that someone speaks your name
Trumpets sound and I hear thunder boom
Every time that you walk in the room.

Friend, I haven't a dollar in the world, but if thee knows a fugitive who needs a breakfast, send him to me. ~ Thomas Garrett

Strategic missiles are precisely the weapons which can deliver a decisive blow against the enemy's primary targets — his armed forces, and first of all, his strategic nuclear attack weapons. As a result of such a strike, the political objectives of a war can be attained in the first days of the conflict. ~ Sergei Biriuzov
