Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. ~ Albert Einstein
  • selected by Basil Fawlty
2005
We are all in this together. ~ English proverb
  • selected by Kalki
2006
How often people speak of art and science as though they were two entirely different things, with no interconnection...That is all wrong. The true artist is quite rational as well as imaginative and knows what he is doing; if he does not, his art suffers. The true scientist is quite imaginative as well as rational, and sometimes leaps to solutions where reason can follow only slowly; if he does not, his science suffers. ~ Isaac Asimov (born c. 2 January 1920)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent. ~ Isaac Asimov
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
When people grow wise in one direction, they are sure to make it easier for themselves to grow wise in other directions as well. On the other hand, when they split up knowledge, concentrate on their own field, and scorn and ignore other fields, they grow less wise — even in their own field. ~ Isaac Asimov
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be ... ~ Isaac Asimov
  • proposed by Kalki

Suggestions

I prefer rationalism to atheism. The question of God and other objects-of-faith are outside reason and play no part in rationalism, thus you don't have to waste your time in either attacking or defending. ~ Isaac Asimov (date of birth)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 13:51, 1 January 2007 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 17:51, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do. ~ Isaac Asimov (date of birth)

  • 2 Kalki 01:10, 2 January 2006 (UTC) (A paraphrase of this by "anonymous" was onced used as QOTD prior to indications of this originating with Asimov, but I would eventually like to use this as well, IF we can find sourcing of it. I generally prefer to avoid "anonymous" quotes in QOTDs, and now would rank them highly only if they were some widely known "traditional" lyrics or proverb.)
  • 1 Zarbon 17:51, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, but left the shield. ~ Philip Morin Freneau

  • 3 because in the heat of combat, defense is as important as offense, if not more important. Zarbon 05:33, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 16:55, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 23:24, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I'll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be. ~ Isaac Asimov

  • 1 Zarbon 02:19, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Science fiction writers foresee the inevitable, and although problems and catastrophes may be inevitable, solutions are not. ~ Isaac Asimov

It pays to be obvious, especially if you have a reputation for subtlety. ~ Isaac Asimov
