Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense. ~ Carl Sagan
  • selected by Kalki
2005
I can not do everything, but I can do something. I must not fail to do the something that I can do. ~ Helen Keller
  • selected by Kalki
2006
Evil spreads with the wind; truth is capable of speading even against it. ~ Paramahansa Yogananda (born 5 January 1893)
  • proposed by UDScott
2007
All statements are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense. ~ Principia Discordia
  • proposed by Kalki (for the anniversary of discovery of the "dwarf planet" Eris, named after the patron goddess of the Discordians)
2008
A dreaded society is not a civilized society. The most progressive and powerful society in the civilized sense, is a society which has recognized its ethos, and come to terms with the past and the present, with religion and science, with modernism and mysticism, with materialism and spirituality; a society free of tension, a society rich in culture. Such a society cannot come with hocus-pocus formulas and with fraud. It has to flow from the depth of a divine search. ~ Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (born 5 January 1928)
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon. In an instant age, perhaps we must relearn the ancient truth that patience, too, has its victories. ~ Konrad Adenauer (born 5 January 1876)
  • proposed by Zarbon

Rank or add further suggestions…

Ranking system:

4 : Excellent - should definitely be used.
3 : Very Good - strong desire to see it used.
2 : Good - some desire to see it used.
1 : Acceptable - but with no particular desire to see it used.
0 : Not acceptable - not appropriate for use as a quote of the day.


Suggestions

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "Press On" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. ~ Calvin Coolidge (Date of death)

  • 3 ~ UDScott 00:22, 2 January 2006 (UTC)
  • 0 Kalki 00:04, 5 January 2007 (UTC) I would normally rank this a 3, if I were confident of it's authorship, but though this has been attributed to Coolidge, I have found no definitive source; though in one book I actually found the definite statement that he said this on the 4th of July 1872, this would be quite extraordinary, as that was the day he was born. Some attributions state that entrepreneur Ray Kroc used it as an "inspirational dictum" but not clearly stating any author, and thus I am doubtful of attributing it to Coolidge, and reluctant to use it until authorship is more clearly determined.

Reality is the original Rorschach. ~ Principia Discordia

I am guiding you to seek truth from the facts of the historical conditions of our society and to identify the problems. The correct solutions will come with the correct identification of the problems. ~ Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (born 5 January 1928)

If people really stopped and realized how much art and creative people move the world versus politics and religion, I mean it's not even up for debate. An artist at least creates things, puts things into the world. Whereas these other people are destroying things, taking things out of the world. ~ Marilyn Manson

To me, through every season dearest;
In every scene, by day, by night,
Thou, present to my mind appearest
A quenchless star, forever bright;
My solitary sole delight:
Where’er I am, by shore, at sea,
I think of thee. ~ David Macbeth Moir

When you fly a balloon you don't file a flight plan; you go where the wind goes. You feel like part of the air. You almost feel like part of eternity, and you just float along. ~ Jeannette Piccard
