Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.

~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson ~
  • selected by Kalki
2005
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee… ~ John Donne
  • selected by Kalki
2006
Not to know what happened before you were born is to be a child forever. For what is the time of a man, except it be interwoven with that memory of ancient things of a superior age? ~ Cicero (born 3 January 106 BC)
  • proposed by UDScott
2007
Each comprehended only that part of the mind of Ilúvatar from which he came, and in the understanding of their brethren they grew but slowly. Yet ever as they listened they came to deeper understanding, and increased in unison and harmony. ~ J. R. R. Tolkien in The Silmarillion (Tolkien born 3 January 1892)
  • selected by Kalki
2008
The rule of no realm is mine, neither of Gondor nor any other, great or small. But all worthy things that are in peril as the world now stands, those are my care. And for my part, I shall not wholly fail of my task, though Gondor should perish, if anything passes through this night that can still grow fair or bear fruit and flower again in days to come. ~ "Gandalf" in The Lord of the Rings : The Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien
  • proposed by Gandalf
2009
This is an ancient hallow, and ere the kings failed or the Tree withered in the court, a fruit must have been set here. For it is said that, though the fruit of the Tree comes seldom to ripeness, yet the life within may then lie sleeping through many long years, and none can foretell the time in which it will awake. ~ Gandalf in The Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others. ~ Cicero (born January 3)

Let your desires be ruled by reason. ~ Cicero (born January 3)

  • 3 because reasoning is more important than mere desires. Zarbon 17:05, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Triviaa 04:20, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 06:29, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

A room without books is like a body without a soul. ~ Cicero (born January 3)

  • 3 because without knowledge, we have emptiness. Zarbon 17:05, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 4 Triviaa 04:20, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 06:29, 2 January 2009 (UTC) I can agree that books are desirable, but not that all rooms require them.

Friends, though absent, are present still. ~ Cicero (born January 3)

  • 4 because death is not an end. The memory will always remain and linger. Magnificent. Zarbon 17:05, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 seems a good thought near the start of the year. Triviaa 04:20, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 06:29, 2 January 2009 (UTC) Though it seems familiar, and a slight enough difference of translation, I cannot find this actually published in the above form, and would prefer to extend this as:
He who looks on a true friend looks, as it were, upon a kind of image of himself: wherefore friends, though absent, are still present; though in poverty, they are rich; though weak, yet in the enjoyment of health; and, what is still more difficult to assert, though dead, they are alive.
  • To this I would probably eventually give a 3 or a 4, but have a different preference for this year.

We must not say every mistake is a foolish one. ~ Cicero (born January 3)

  • 3 because sometimes good comes from one's mistakes, elegant. Zarbon 17:05, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 06:29, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

With engineering, I view this year's failure as next year's opportunity to try it again. Failures are not something to be avoided. You want to have them happen as quickly as you can so you can make progress rapidly. ~ Gordon Moore

  • 3 Zarbon 05:54, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 perhaps better for the end of the year? Triviaa 04:20, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Lúthien stood upon the bridge, and declared her power: and the spell was loosed that bound stone to stone, and the gates were thrown down, and the walls opened, and the pits laid bare. ~ J. R. R. Tolkien in The Silmarillion

Of the theme that I have declared to you, I will now that ye make in harmony together a Great Music. And since I have kindled you with the Flame Imperishable, ye shall show forth your powers in adorning this theme, each with his own thoughts and devices, if he will. But I will sit and hearken, and be glad that through you great beauty has been wakened into song. ~ J. R. R. Tolkien in The Silmarillion

  • 4 Kalki (talk · contributions) 15:31, 31 December 2009 (UTC) * 3 Kalki 06:29, 2 January 2009 (UTC) but will probably go for a 4 on this eventually
  • 2 Zarbon 14:45, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 23:31, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

The world is changing: I feel it in the water, I feel it in the earth, and I smell it in the air. ~ J. R. R. Tolkien in The Return of the King

  • 3 Kalki 06:29, 2 January 2009 (UTC) though leaning toward a 4, as another good quote for this period of changes.
