Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Physics isn't the most important thing. Love is. ~ Richard Feynman
  • selected by Kalki, — This statement has been discovered to very probably be a misattribution, and seems to have been created as part of a paraphrase of Feynman's note to the mother of Marcus Chown: "Tell your son to stop trying to fill your head with science — for to fill your heart with love is enough." ~ Kalki 01:29, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
2005
No nation is fit to sit in judgement upon any other nation. ~ Woodrow Wilson, (born 28 December 1856)
  • proposed by UDScott
2006
The length of one's days matters less than the love of one's family and friends. ~ Gerald Ford (recent death)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
The forces of moderation and democracy must, and will, prevail against extremism and dictatorship. I will not be intimidated. ... Despite threats of death, I will not acquiesce to tyranny, but rather lead the fight against it. ~ Benazir Bhutto (recent death)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
Nothing is so galling to a people not broken in from the birth as a paternal, or, in other words, a meddling government, a government which tells them what to read, and say, and eat, and drink and wear. ~ Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay (Date of death)
  • proposed by UDScott
2009

Our neighbors use searchlights, for they want more light. I tell you... we need more darkness. ~ Ivan Konev (born December 28)

  • 4 because this has deep meaning...sometimes it is better to have a century of peace (darkness) and serenity rather than one that sparks (light) problems. Very beautiful dynamic here. Zarbon 06:43, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

A film is just like a muffin. You make it. You put it on the table. One person might say, "Oh, I don't like it". One might say it's the best muffin ever made. One might say it's an awful muffin. It's hard for me to say. It's for me to make the muffin. ~ Denzel Washington

In the transmuted world new significances arise which are scarcely to be traced in the world of symbols; so that it becomes a world of beauty and purpose — and, alas, suffering and evil. ~ Arthur Stanley Eddington

  • 3 Zarbon 06:11, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 01:21, 26 December 2008 (UTC) — but would extend this to end with "The frank realisation that physical science is concerned with a world of shadows is one of the most significant of recent advances." with a very strong lean toward 4, but now would extend this even further than previously to read:
The external world of physics has … become a world of shadows. In removing our illusions we have removed the substance, for indeed we have seen that substance is one of the greatest of our illusions. ... The sparsely spread nuclei of electric force become a tangible solid; their restless agitation becomes the warmth of summer; the octave of aethereal vibrations becomes a gorgeous rainbow. Nor does the alchemy stop here. In the transmuted world new significances arise which are scarcely to be traced in the world of symbols; so that it becomes a world of beauty and purpose — and, alas, suffering and evil.
The frank realisation that physical science is concerned with a world of shadows is one of the most significant of recent advances.

It is not too much to hope that in the not too distant future we shall be competent to understand so simple a thing as a star.

OR

At terrestrial temperatures matter has complex properties which are likely to prove most difficult to unravel; but it is reasonable to hope that in the not too distant future we shall be competent to understand so simple a thing as a star. ~ Arthur Stanley Eddington

  • 3 for both short and long versions. Zarbon 06:11, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 4 Kalki (talk · contributions) 19:55, 22 December 2009 (UTC) * 3 Kalki 01:21, 26 December 2008 (UTC) — slightly prefer the short version. but have shifted to having a slight preference for longer version.
  • 3 for shorter version. - InvisibleSun 22:47, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding that we must learn a great deal more about 'and'. ~ Arthur Stanley Eddington

It is difficult for the matter-of-fact physicist to accept the view that the substratum of everything is of mental character. But no one can deny that mind is the first and most direct thing in our experience, and all else is remote inference — inference either intuitive or deliberate. ~ Arthur Stanley Eddington

The universe is of the nature of a thought or sensation in a universal Mind... To put the conclusion crudely — the stuff of the world is mind-stuff. ~ Arthur Stanley Eddington
