Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one; I hope some day you'll join us, and the world will live as one. ~ John Lennon
  • selected by Kalki
2005
It is better to ask some of the questions than to know all the answers. ~ James Thurber (born 8 December 1894)
  • proposed by UDScott
2006
May memory restore again and again
The smallest color of the smallest day:
Time is the school in which we learn,
Time is the fire in which we burn.

~ Delmore Schwartz ~ (born 8 December 1913)
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2007
A hero is someone who rebels or seems to rebel against the facts of existence and seems to conquer them. Obviously that can only work at moments. It can't be a lasting thing. That's not saying that people shouldn't keep trying to rebel against the facts of existence. Someday, who knows, we might conquer death, disease and war. ~ Jim Morrison (born 8 December 1943)
  • proposed by UDScott
2008
The wit makes fun of other persons; the satirist makes fun of the world; the humorist makes fun of himself, but in so doing, he identifies himself with people — that is, people everywhere, not for the purpose of taking them apart, but simply revealing their true nature. ~ James Thurber
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2009
I am not bound over to swear allegiance to any master; where the storm drives me I turn in for shelter. ~ Horace

And the self articulate, affectionate, and flowing,
Ease, warmth, light, the utter showing,
When in the white bed all things are made.
