Quotes of the day from previous years:

2005
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
  • selected by Kalki
2006
Know that however ugly the parts appear
the whole remains beautiful...
... the wholeness of life and things, the divine beauty
of the universe. Love that, not man
Apart from that, or else you will share man's pitiful confusions,
or drown in despair when his days darken.

~ Robinson Jeffers (born 10 January 1887)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
Science and mathematics
Run parallel to reality, they symbolize it, they squint at it,
They never touch it: consider what an explosion
Would rock the bones of men into little white fragments and unsky the world
If any mind for a moment touch truth.

~ Robinson Jeffers ~
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
I believe that the Universe is one being, all its parts are different expressions of the same energy, and they are all in communication with each other, therefore parts of one organic whole. This whole is in all its parts so beautiful, and is felt by me to be so intensely in earnest, that I am compelled to love it and to think of it as divine. ~ Robinson Jeffers
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
Truth is the only merit that gives dignity and worth to history. ~ John Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton

"You are the big drop of dew under the lotus leaf, I am the smaller one on its upper side," said the dewdrop to the lake. ~ Rabindranath Tagore, Stray Birds.

Corruption never has been compulsory; when the cities lie at the monster's feet there are left the mountains. ~ Robinson Jeffers (date of birth)

Look west at the hill of water: it is half the planet:
this dome, this half-globe, this bulging
Eyeball of water, arched over to Asia,
Australia and white Antartica: those are the eyelids that never close;
this is the staring unsleeping
Eye of the earth; and what it watches is not our wars.

The gang serves lies, the passionate
Man plays his part; the cold passion for truth
Hunts in no pack.

All power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority: still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. ~ John Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton

  • 4 Zarbon 06:01, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 14:55, 6 January 2009 (UTC) though I eventually will probably rank this a 3 or even a 4, despite some casual use of absolute words: I can't agree that "bad men" are ever truly "great men" though it is obvious that by great he means "powerful." I would actually prefer to trim this one to the most famous portion of it.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:19, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

It is said that heaven does not create one man above or below another man. Any existing distinction between the wise and the stupid, between the rich and the poor, comes down to a matter of education. ~ Fukuzawa Yukichi

The tides are in our veins, we still mirror the stars,
life is your child, but there is in me
Older and harder than life and more impartial, the eye
that watched before there was an ocean.

~ Robinson Jeffers ~

  • 3 Kalki (talk · contributions) 20:09, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

O that our souls could scale a height like this,
A mighty mountain swept o'er by the bleak
Keen winds of heaven; and, standing on that peak
Above the blinding clouds of prejudice,
Would we could see all truly as it is;
The calm eternal truth would keep us meek.

~ Robinson Jeffers ~

I have seen these ways of God: I know of no reason
For fire and change and torture and the old returnings.

Reason will not decide at last; the sword will decide.
The sword: an obsolete instrument of bronze or steel,
formerly used to kill men, but here
In the sense of a symbol.

~ Robinson Jeffers ~

  • 3 Kalki (talk · contributions) 20:09, 5 January 2010 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4

I think, here is your emblem
To hang in the future sky;
Not the cross, not the hive,
But this; bright power, dark peace;
Fierce consciousness joined with final
Disinterestedness;
Life with calm death; the falcon’s
Realist eyes and act
Married to the massive
Mysticism of stone,
Which failure cannot cast down
Nor success make proud.

~ Robinson Jeffers ~
