Even if we accept, as the basic tenet of true democracy, that one moron is equal to one genius, is it necessary to go a further step and hold that two morons are better than one genius? ~ Leó Szilárd (born 11 February 1898)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
In Common Sense Paine flared forth with a document so powerful that the Revolution became inevitable. Washington recognized the difference, and in his calm way said that matters never could be the same again. ~ Thomas Alva Edison (born 11 February 1847)

Suggestions

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. ~ Thomas Edison (Birth date)

  • proposed by Liquidice5
  • 1. I don't dislike this (anonymously submitted) quote; but it appears on the Edison page as one variant among several in the Unsourced section. For this reason I wouldn't feel any confidence in selecting it. - InvisibleSun 17:16, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 00:16, 12 February 2008 (UTC) 2 Kalki 23:14, 10 February 2007 (UTC) ranking this a bit higher, as sourcing for it is a bit stronger now, but there are still enough variants to lack confidence in the accuracy of any.
  • 2. Fys. “Ta fys aym”. 23:24, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 because this may be true, since only through trial and tribulation do people discover things. It also emphasizes the human will to go on, very nice quote. Zarbon 22:11, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Every man deems that he has precisely the trials and temptations which are the hardest of all others for him to bear; but they are so, simply because they are the very ones he most needs. ~ Lydia Maria Child (born February 11, 1802).

  • 3 InvisibleSun 17:16, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 23:14, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 because I don't agree with it. Fys. “Ta fys aym”. 23:24, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 22:11, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

I was sixteen years old when the first World War broke out, and I lived at that time in Hungary. From reading the newspapers in Hungary, it would have appeared that, whatever Austria and Germany did was right and whatever England, France, Russia, or America did was wrong. A good case could be made out for this general thesis, in almost every single instance. It would have been difficult for me to prove, in any single instance, that the newspapers were wrong, but somehow, it seemed to me unlikely that the two nations located in the center of Europe should be invariably right, and that all the other nations should be invariably wrong. History, I reasoned, would hardly operate in such a peculiar fashion, and it didn't take long until I began to hold views which were diametrically opposed to those held by the majority of my schoolmates. ~ Leó Szilárd (born February 11, 1898)

  • 3 (A little long, perhaps, for a Quote of the Day?) InvisibleSun 17:16, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 23:14, 10 February 2007 (UTC) (but it is a bit long, and I would trim it slightly to begin with "From reading the newspapers in Hungary..." and even then it remains a bit long...
  • 3 if trimmed. Fys. “Ta fys aym”. 23:24, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 22:11, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

The people who have sufficient passion for the truth to give the truth a chance to prevail, if it runs counter to their bias, are in a minority. How important is this "minority?" It is difficult to say at this point, for, at the present time their influence on governmental decisions is not perceptible. ~ Leó Szilárd (born February 11, 1898)

  • 3 Kalki 23:14, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • 3. Good point but difficult to express concisely. Fys. “Ta fys aym”. 23:24, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:26, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 22:11, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

We don't know a millionth of one percent about anything. ~ Thomas Edison

  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:25, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 Zarbon 05:16, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Nonviolence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages. ~ Thomas Edison

  • 3 Kalki 23:29, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:25, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 although Edison may be somewhat right, savagery still exists in human impulses and perhaps, always will. - Zarbon 05:16, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
