Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
How lovely to think that no one need wait a moment, we can start now, start slowly changing the world! How lovely that everyone, great and small, can make their contribution toward introducing justice straightaway... And you can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness! ~ Anne Frank
  • selected by Kalki
2005
The maple tree that night
Without a wind or rain
Let go its leaves
Because its time had come.

~ Eugene McCarthy (recent death)
  • proposed by Kalki
2006
We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin, but we all belong to one human race. ~ Kofi Annan, elected Secretary General of the United Nations on this date, in 1996.
  • proposed by UDScott
2007
Where they burn books, they will also burn people. ~ Heinrich Heine (born 13 December 1797)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
Mark this well, you proud men of action: You are nothing but the unwitting agents of the men of thought who often, in quiet self-effacement, mark out most exactly all your doings in advance. ~ Heinrich Heine
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
Pedantry and mastery are opposite attitudes toward rules. To apply a rule to the letter, rigidly, unquestioningly, in cases where it fits and in cases where it does not fit, is pedantry... To apply a rule with natural ease, with judgment, noticing the cases where it fits, and without ever letting the words of the rule obscure the purpose of the action or the opportunities of the situation, is mastery. ~ George Pólya (date of birth)
  • proposed by Ningauble
2010

As long as the differences and diversities of mankind exist, democracy must allow for compromise, for accommodation, and for the recognition of differences. ~ Eugene McCarthy (recent death)

And the butterflies
And the whirling-mad

If our animosities are born out of fear, then confident generosity is born out of hope. One of the central lessons I have learned after a half century of working in the developing world is that the replacement of fear by hope is probably the single most powerful trampoline of progress. ~ Aga Khan IV

  • 3 although I personally believe that the authoritarian principle of instilling fear creates a powerful dynamic. Zarbon 05:01, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Life's an awfully lonesome affair. You can live close against other people yet your lives never touch. You come into the world alone and you go out of the world alone yet it seems to me you are more alone while living than even coming and going. ~ Emily Carr

One should forgive one's enemies, but not before they are hanged. ~ Heinrich Heine

At first I was almost about to despair, I thought I never could bear it — but I did I bear it. The question remains: how? ~ Heinrich Heine

  • 4 because after the initial act, one may be stunned as to how they lived through it. Whatever "it" is characterized by, I assume any difficult and strenuous task may be applied into the equation. Zarbon 05:05, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

He who will establish himself on a certain height must yield according to circumstances, like the weather-cock on a church-spire, which, though it be made of iron, would soon be broken by the storm-wind if it remained obstinately immovable, and did not understand the noble art of turning to every wind. ~ Heinrich Heine

What! Think you that my flashes show me
Only in lightnings to excel?
Believe me, friends, you do not know me,
For I can thunder quite as well.
