Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Loving kindness is greater than laws; and the charities of life are more than all ceremonies. ~ The Talmud
  • selected by Kalki
2005
My creed is that public service must be more than doing a job efficiently and honestly. It must be a complete dedication to the people and to the nation with full recognition that every human being is entitled to courtesy and consideration, that constructive criticism is not only to be expected but sought, that smears are not only to be expected but fought, that honor is to be earned but not bought. ~ Margaret Chase Smith (born 14 December 1897)
  • proposed by Kalki
2006
My deepest impulses are optimistic; an attitude that seems to me as spiritually necessary and proper as it is intellectually suspect. ~ Ellen Willis (born 14 December 1941)
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2007
I had determined to go as far as declaring in abstruse and puzzling utterances the future causes of the "common advent", even those truly cogent ones that I have foreseen. Yet lest whatever human changes may be to come should scandalise delicate ears, the whole thing is written in nebulous form, rather than as a clear prophecy of any kind. ~ Nostradamus‎ (born 14 December 1503)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
The Art of Peace is not easy. It is a fight to the finish, the slaying of evil desires and all falsehood within. On occasion the Voice of Peace resounds like thunder, jolting human beings out of their stupor. ~ Morihei Ueshiba (born 14 December 1883)
  • proposed by Kalki
2009

Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company. ~ George Washington (Date of death)

  • 0 because for one I do not agree with it and second, because it wasn't said by him originally. Zarbon 16:23, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

I think that it is high time that we remembered that the Constitution, as amended, speaks not only of the freedom of speech but also of trial by jury instead of trial by accusation. ~ Margaret Chase Smith (date of birth)

Individuals bearing witness cannot do the work of social movements, but they can break a corrosive and demoralizing silence. ~ Ellen Willis (born December 14, 1941)

It's as crucial to defend secular culture as to preserve secular law. And in fact the two projects are inseparable: When religion defines morality, the wall between church and state comes to be seen as immoral. ~ Ellen Willis

  • 2 Ningauble 14:07, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

The project of organizing a democratic political movement entails the hope that one's ideas and beliefs are not merely idiosyncratic but speak to vital human needs, interests and desires, and therefore will be persuasive to many and ultimately most people. But this is a very different matter from deciding to put forward only those ideas presumed (accurately or not) to be compatible with what most people already believe. ~ Ellen Willis

  • 3 Ningauble 14:07, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

In recent years, conservatives bent on reinstating an essentially religious vocabulary of absolute good and evil as the only legitimate framework for discussing social values have redefined "relative" as "arbitrary." That conflation has been reinforced by social theorists and advocates of identity politics who argue that there is no universal morality, only the value systems of particular cultures and power structures. ~ Ellen Willis

Slowly and sadly we laid him down,
From the field of his fame fresh and gory;
We carved not a line, and we raised not a stone,
But we left him alone with his glory. ~ Charles Wolfe

When twenty years of the Moon's reign have passed
another will take up his reign for seven thousand years.
When the exhausted Sun takes up his cycle
then my prophecy and threats will be accomplished. ~ Nostradamus

  • 2 Zarbon 06:40, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 22:21, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Moral cowardice that keeps us from speaking our minds is as dangerous to this country as irresponsible talk. The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character. ~ Margaret Chase Smith

Regarding technique, from ancient times it has been said that movements must fly like lightning and attacks must strike like thunder. ~ Morihei Ueshiba

  • 3 Zarbon 06:40, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 22:21, 10 December 2008 (UTC) I like this, but prefer the verse version of a similar statement which I am adding directly below this for easier comparison.

Move like a beam of light;
Fly like lightning,
Strike like thunder,
Whirl in circles around
A stable center.

~ Morihei Ueshiba ~

  • 2 Zarbon 05:18, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

If your opponent strikes with fire, counter with water, becoming completely fluid and free-flowing. Water, by its nature, never collides with or breaks against anything. On the contrary, it swallows up any attack harmlessly. ~ Morihei Ueshiba

  • 3 Zarbon 06:40, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 22:21, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

In the Art of Peace we never attack. An attack is proof that one is out of control. Never run away from any kind of challenge, but do not try to suppress or control an opponent unnaturally. Let attackers come any way they like and then blend with them. Never chase after opponents. Redirect each attack and get firmly behind it. ~ Morihei Ueshiba

  • 3 Kalki 22:21, 10 December 2008 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.
  • 3 Zarbon 05:18, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Instructors can impart only a fraction of the teaching. It is through your own devoted practice that the mysteries of the Art of Peace are brought to life. ~ Morihei Ueshiba
