Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh, and the greatness which does not bow before children. ~ Khalil Gibran
  • selected by Kalki
2005
When I talk of the purpose of life, I am thinking not only of human life, but of all life on Earth and of the life which must exist upon other planets throughout the universe. It is only of life on Earth, however, that one can speak with any certainty. It seems to me that all life on Earth, the sum total of life upon the Earth, has purpose. ~ Clifford D. Simak (born 3 August 1904)
  • proposed by Kalki
2006
Somewhere, he thought, on the long backtrack of history, the human race had accepted an insanity for a principle and had persisted in it until today that insanity-turned-principle stood ready to wipe out, if not the race itself, at least all of those things, both material and immaterial, that had been fashioned as symbols of humanity through many hard-won centuries. ~ Clifford D. Simak (born 3 August 1904)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
There is a plan, it seems to me, that reaches out of the electron to the rim of the universe and what this plan may be or how it came about is beyond my feeble intellect. But if we are looking for something on which to pin our faith — and, indeed, our hope — the plan might well be it. I think we have thought too small and have been too afraid. ~ Clifford D. Simak (born 3 August 1904)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
I have tried at times to place humans in perspective against the vastness of universal time and space. I have been concerned with where we, as a race, may be going and what may be our purpose in the universal scheme — if we have a purpose. In general, I believe we do, and perhaps an important one. ~ Clifford D. Simak
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
I did not want to move. For I had the feeling that this was a place, once seen, that could not be seen again. If I left and then came back, it would not be the same; no matter how many times I might return to this particular spot the place and feeling would never be the same, something would be lost or something would be added, and there never would exist again, through all eternity, all the integrated factors that made it what it was in this magic moment. ~ Clifford D. Simak
  • proposed by Kalki
2010

Suggestions

I should not proceed by land to the East, as is customary, but by a Westerly route, in which direction we have hitherto no certain evidence that any one has gone. ~ 3 August 1493 1492 diary entry by Christopher Columbus, starting his journey to what will become known as America.

  • 3 ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 04:58, 20 July 2005 (UTC)
  • 2 121a0012 02:38, August 2, 2005 (UTC) (corrected year per WP)
  • 3 AllanHainey 07:50, 2 August 2005 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 21:39, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 Zarbon 14:59, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Time is still the great mystery to us. It is no more than a concept; we don't know if it even exists... ~ Clifford D. Simak

  • 3 because the eternity of time stretches forever and the acceptance of the unknown is what makes it even more of a mystery. Zarbon 15:39, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 12:12, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:21, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

There was a world of mutants, men and women who were more than normal men and women, persons who had certain human talents and certain human understandings which the normal men and women of the world had never known, or having known, could not utilize in their entirety, unable to use intelligently all the mighty powers which lay dormant in their brains. ~ Clifford D. Simak

  • 3 because this has been scientifically proven true, that human beings use only approximately three percent of their brain. And the "smartest" ones use merely four percent. Zarbon 15:39, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 12:12, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 23:21, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

What do you mean by faith? Is faith enough for Man? Should he be satisfied with faith alone? Is there no way of finding out the truth? Is the attitude of faith, of believing in something for which there can be no more than philosophic proof...? ~ Clifford D. Simak

  • 3 because the devotion to faith for the sake of faith alone doesn't hold enough evidence for mankind to suffer its restrictions. Philosophic proof is beautiful, magnificent, and utterly brilliant, but it has proven not unsatisfactory for the minds that have captured the Earth today. Zarbon 15:39, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 12:12, 31 July 2008 (UTC) (but would complete the last sentence as Simak wrote it: "Is the attitude of faith, of believing in something for which there can be no more than philosophic proof the true mark of a Christian?" — in that form I might someday rank it a 3, or even a 4, but not this year.)
  • 3 for the completed quote. - InvisibleSun 23:21, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

We came into a homeless frontier, a place where we were not welcome, where nothing that lived was welcome, where thought and logic were abhorrent and we were frightened, but we went into this place because the universe lay before us, and if we were to know ourselves, we must know the universe... ~ Clifford D. Simak

  • 3 Kalki 12:12, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 because all is intertwined. Zarbon 04:14, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:21, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps there was no limit, there might, quite likely, be no such condition as the ultimate; there might be no time when any creature or any group of creatures could stop at any certain point and say, this is as far as we can go, there is no use of trying to go farther. For each new development produced, as side effects, so many other possibilities, so many other roads to travel, that with each step one took down any given road there were more paths to follow. There'd never be an end, he thought — no end to anything. ~ Clifford D. Simak
