  • 3 Kalki 23:00, 7 January 2007 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.
  • 3 because this is highly true. Many would become better if they didn't already believe themselves to be. Very powerful meaning. Zarbon 18:00, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Politeness and a sense of honor have this advantage: we bestow them on others without losing a thing. ~ Baltasar Gracián

Some die because they feel everything, others because they feel nothing. Some are fools because they suffer no regrets, and others because they do. ~ Baltasar Gracián

    • SOURCE: 1947 Trial Documents
  • 1 Kalki 00:29, 6 January 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward ZERO; there is very little chance I see of so profoundly STUPID a statement ever being an appropriate choice for QOTD.

The image is one thing and the human being is another...it's very hard to live up to an image. ~ Elvis Presley

Prejudice locks the mind. Nothing can enter. Nothing true can escape. ~ Gerry Spence

  • 3 Zarbon 06:10, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 00:29, 6 January 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 3, though I consider it a somewhat flawed and prejudicial statement — truth can escape any prison — and any form of confinement — in ways that seem incredible to the dull and dimwitted, and which seem impossible to the oblivious.
  • 2 InvisibleSun 23:40, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

My intent is to tell the truth as I know it, realizing that what is true for me may be blasphemy for others. ~ Gerry Spence

The people of a nation are enslaved when, together, they are helpless to institute effective change, when the people serve the government more than the government serves them. ~ Gerry Spence

To bargain freedom for security is the devil's bargain. Having made the bargain, one enjoys neither freedom nor security. ~ Gerry Spence

  • 4 because to sacrifice one would automatically sacrifice both. Zarbon 06:10, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 00:29, 6 January 2009 (UTC) agree with the statement, but it little more than paraphrases Franklin's famous maxim on the matter; might still rank it higher eventually...
  • 2 InvisibleSun 23:40, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Power can win the body count but it cannot win this war. Because the enemy is not human. This is a war against a malicious spirit. Only fools attempt to defeat a spirit with guns and rockets and bombs. ~ Gerry Spence

  • 2 InvisibleSun 23:40, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

The goal of a free nation is to reveal by example the enlightened possibilities of the human race, not to wield its power of destruction and death over the helpless, the poor, the starving and the war torn masses. The goal of a free nation must be no different outside its borders than within them. In America we do not massacre whole towns because they may be the chosen domicile of a criminal or a conspiracy of criminals. Instead we carefully root out the felons and bring them to justice. ~ Gerry Spence

The less of one's life one must exchange for money, the more freedom one may enjoy. ~ Gerry Spence

When any system has for its goal the advancement of the system over the betterment of its individual members, such a system is embedded in slavery. ~ Gerry Spence

Teach the child to respect that which is not respectable and you teach the child the first requirement of slavery: submission to unjust authority. ~ Gerry Spence

  • 3 Kalki (talk · contributions) 16:26, 5 January 2010 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

A new fascism promises security from the terror of crime. All that is required is that we take away the criminals’ rights – which, of course, are our own. Out of our desperation and fear we begin to feel a sense of security from the new totalitarian state. ~ Gerry Spence

  • 3 Kalki (talk · contributions) 16:26, 5 January 2010 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

Argument is the affirmation of our being. It is the principal instrument of human intercourse. Without argument the species would perish. As a subtle suggestion, it is the means by which we aid another. As a warning, it steers us from danger. As exposition, it teaches. As an expression of creativity, it is the gift of ourselves. As a protest, it struggles for justice. As a reasoned dialogue, it resolves disputes. As an assertion of self, it engenders respect. As an entreaty of love, it expresses our devotion. As a plea, it generates mercy. As charismatic oration it moves multitudes and changes history. We must argue — to help, to warn, to lead, to love, to create, to learn, to enjoy justice — to be. ~ Gerry Spence

Knowing how to keep a friend is more important than gaining a new one. ~ Baltasar Gracián

Not believing others implies that you yourself are deceitful. The liar suffers twice: he neither believes nor is believed. ~ Baltasar Gracián

Readiness is the mother of luck. ~ Baltasar Gracián

  • 3 Kalki (talk · contributions) 16:26, 5 January 2010 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

Honorable beginnings should serve to awaken curiosity, not to heighten people's expectations. We are much better off when reality surpasses our expectations, and something turns out better than we thought it would. ~ Baltasar Gracián

Do something well, and that is quickly enough. ~ Baltasar Gracián

Don't live by generalities, unless it be to act virtuously, and don't ask desire to follow precise laws, for you will have to drink tomorrow from the water you scorn today. ~ Baltasar Gracián

  • 3 Kalki (talk · contributions) 16:26, 5 January 2010 (UTC) with a VERY strong lean toward 4.

Virtue alone is for real; all else is sham. Talent and greatness depend on virtue, not on fortune. Only virtue is sufficient unto herself. She makes us love the living and remember the dead. ~ Baltasar Gracián
