Quotes of the day from previous years:

2003
I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death. ~ George Carlin
  • selected by IP 68.227.198.159
2004
Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the angels'
hierarchies? and even if one of them suddenly
pressed me against his heart, I would perish
in the embrace of his stronger existence.
For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror
which we are barely able to endure and are awed
because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
Each single angel is terrifying.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Make your ego porous. Will is of little importance, complaining is nothing, fame is nothing. Openness, patience, receptivity, solitude is everything. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke (born 4 December 1875)
  • proposed by UDScott
2006
No sadder proof can be given by a man of his own littleness than disbelief in great men. ~ Thomas Carlyle (date of birth)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
You don't get very far in life without having to be brave an awful lot. Because we all have our frightening moments and difficult trials and we don't have much of a choice but to get through them, and it takes a lot of bravery to do that. The most important thing about bravery is this — It's not about not being scared — it's about being scared and doing it anyway — that's bravery. ~ Ysabella Brave
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
Is there any religion whose followers can be pointed to as distinctly more amiable and trustworthy than those of any other? If so, this should be enough. I find the nicest and best people generally profess no religion at all, but are ready to like the best men of all religions. ~ Samuel Butler

That there should one Man die ignorant who had capacity for Knowledge, this I call a tragedy. ~ Thomas Carlyle (date of birth)

The great characters of fiction live as truly as the memories of dead men. For the life after death it is not necessary that a man or woman should have lived. ~ Samuel Butler

  • 3 InvisibleSun 08:53, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 22:55, 3 December 2007 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
  • 1 and I seriously don't agree with the second half of this. It's fine to believe that a work of fiction is as grandiose as that which lived, but to say that a life is worth nothing after its death is just plain wrong, for a life truly never dies if it is kept alive in the minds of many. Zarbon 15:36, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

If people were to demand cash payment in irrefragable certainty for everything that they have taken hitherto as paper money on the credit of the bank of public opinion, is there money enough behind it all to stand so great a drain even on so great a reserve? ~ Samuel Butler

  • 4 InvisibleSun 08:53, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 22:55, 3 December 2007 (UTC) This is good, and I like it, but I much prefer the Butler quote above as a QOTD, and might rank it a 4 eventually.
  • 1 Zarbon 15:36, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

You need to laugh more. Life is filled with too many problems, to not laugh every day. ... We need to have a sense of humor going into this because it's too tough without it. ~ Ysabella Brave (born 4 December 1979)

It's like not only does he shit on our heads, we're supposed to say thanks for the hat. ~ from The Sopranos Brendan Filone Anthony DeSando (born December 4)

  • 3 because I like the message behind the quote. I'm curious if the word "shit" is considered profanity. I don't agree with curses appearing on quote of the day, but is that specific word excessive, I'd like Kalki's thoughts since we both seem to disagree with profanity for the most part. Zarbon 16:41, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 0 Kalki 01:05, 29 November 2008 (UTC) this is fine by me as a quote within the article, but a bit too extreme for QOTD.
  • 1 InvisibleSun 21:01, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Kids, you think you can protect 'em, well you can't. ~ from The Sopranos Brendan Filone Anthony DeSando (born December 4)

  • 4 because children seem to do things that places them in danger and no matter how hard one may try, a child finds a way. Zarbon 16:41, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
