2007
It's an alethiometer. It's one of only six that were ever made. Lyra, I urge you again: keep it private. ... It tells you the truth. As for how to read it, you'll have to learn by yourself. Now go — it's getting lighter... ~ Philip Pullman (Quote from The Golden Compass (1995) the movie adaptation opening on 7 December 2007)
  • proposed by Kalki

My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it's on your plate — that's my philosophy. ~ Thornton Wilder in The Skin of Our Teeth (date of death)

  • 1 Nice quote, but in general, and mostly for consistency, I'd rather see quotes on the writer's date of birth (April 17 in this case, which already has used two of his quotes and has several more suggested) than death. Matchups 18:55, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Providence has nothing good or high in store for one who does not resolutely aim at something high or good. A purpose is the eternal condition of success. ~ Thornton Wilder (date of death)

In a three-minute stretch between commercials, or in seven hundred words, it is impossible to present unfamiliar thoughts or surprising conclusions with the argument and evidence required to afford them credibility. Regurgitation of welcome pieties faces no such problem. ~ Noam Chomsky (born December 7, 1928}

  • 1 Zarbon 15:49, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Being able to do as one pleases is the natural goal of the libertarian, but having nothing to do is not. While it may be correct to say that the human species is badly prepared for having nothing to do, it is quite a different matter to say that it is badly prepared for the freedom to do as one pleases. People who are able to do as they please may work very hard, given the opportunity to do interesting work. ~ Noam Chomsky

The most effective way to restrict democracy is to transfer decision-making from the public arena to unaccountable institutions: kings and princes, priestly castes, military juntas, party dictatorships, or modern corporations. ~ Noam Chomsky

Jingoism, fear, racism, religious fundamentalism: these are the ways of appealing to people if you’re trying to organize a mass base of support for policies that are really intended to crush them. ~ Noam Chomsky

A reporter can write equally well about everything that is presented to his view, but a creative writer can do his best only with what lies within the range and character of his deepest sympathies. ~ Willa Cather

  • 3 Kalki 23:51, 6 December 2006 (UTC) with a lean toward 4, but would now extend this to :
To note an artist's limitations is but to define his talent. A reporter can write equally well about everything that is presented to his view, but a creative writer can do his best only with what lies within the range and character of his deepest sympathies.

Ever hear the old saying that beauty is only skin deep? Well, right now, all you can see is the beauty. ~ DragonBall Z's Zarbon Paul Dobson (born December 7)

  • 4 because the quote defines me. And furthermore, the dynamic parallel of beauty outside and beast inside is drawn here. Zarbon 06:11, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 01:58, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 InvisibleSun 23:13, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

You only saw the beauty side of me before, now with great pleasure, I introduce you to the beast! ~ DragonBall Z's Zarbon Paul Dobson (born December 7)

  • 3 because anger compensates where beauty cannot and in all fury, takes a life of its own. Zarbon 06:11, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 01:58, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 InvisibleSun 23:13, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

God made the integers, all the rest is the work of man. ~ Leopold Kronecker

No one conquers who doesn't fight. ~ Gabriel Biel (date of death)

  • 2 Zarbon 03:45, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 01:58, 29 November 2008 (UTC) Omnia Vincit Amor
    • I think the concept of "love conquers all" is being abused ruthlessly by you. But to make things clear, this quote means that you cannot conquer someone who does not fight...meaning a peaceful person is protected against the most powerful attack. I don't think you understood the idea behind the quote. Zarbon 06:23, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
      • Nay, "who" refers to the subject "no one", it is not the object of "conquers." (Cf. "They also serve who only stand and wait." John Milton, On His Blindness, 1652 ) Contemporary vernacular, seemingly wary of the relative clause, favors a conditional particular construction, "If you don't fight then you can't conquer," to express the qualified universal intended here. ~ Ningauble 14:11, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 23:13, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Yesterday, December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. - Franklin D. Roosevelt

  • 4 This seems to me a defining quote for this day. Matchups 18:55, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 20:08, 7 December 2008 (UTC) Might eventually rank it higher, but might also wish it extended more.
  • 1 this can be moved to Roosevelt's birthday. Otherwise, I don't see the point of detailing the Pearl Harbor attack or we'd have to take note of all the other historic events that occurred. Zarbon 04:48, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
If there is a well-known quote associated with a historic event, by all means make note of it. See July 4 and July 20 for examples of what has already been done. Matchups 04:33, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

I am persuaded to believe that God had left nations to the liberty of setting up such governments as best pleased themselves, and that magistrates were set up for the good of nations, not nations for the honor and glory of magistrates. ~ Algernon Sydney (executed that day, no birthdate known)

  • 3 Kalki (talk · contributions) 23:58, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

We live in an age that makes truth pass for treason, and as I dare not say anything against it, so the ears of those that are about me will probably be found too tender to hear it. This my trial and condemnation do sufficiently evidence. ~ Algernon Sydney (executed that day, no birthdate known)

  • 3 Kalki (talk · contributions) 23:58, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

That which is not just, is not Law; and that which is not Law, ought not to be obeyed. ~ Algernon Sydney (executed that day, no birthdate known)
