Quotes of the day from previous years:

2003
All animals are equal — but some animals are more equal than others. ~ Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • selected by Nanobug
2004
Of all the creatures that creep, swim or fly,
Peopling the earth, waters and the sky,
From Rome to Iceland, Paris to Japan,
I really think, the greatest fool is man.

~ Nicolas Boileau-Despréaux ~
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Most of the books, music and movies ever released are not available for sale, anywhere in the world. In the brief time that P2P nets have flourished, the ad-hoc masses of the Internet have managed to put just about everything online. What's more, they've done it far cheaper than any other archiving/revival effort ever. ~ Cory Doctorow (born 17 July 1971)
  • author proposed by MosheZadka; quote proposed by Kalki
2006
Were I so tall to reach the pole,
Or grasp the ocean with my span,
I must be measured by my soul;
The mind's the standard of the man.

~ Isaac Watts ~ (born 17 July 1674)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
Maintain a constant watch at all times against a dogmatical spirit: fix not your assent to any proposition in a firm and unalterable manner, till you have some firm and unalterable ground for it, and till you have arrived at some clear and sure evidence. ~ Isaac Watts
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
Error is a hardy plant; it flourisheth in every soil;
In the heart of the wise and good, alike with the wicked and foolish;
For there is no error so crooked, but it hath in it some lines of truth;
Nor is any poison so deadly, that it serveth not some wholesome use.

~ Martin Farquhar Tupper ~
  • proposed by Zarbon
2009
They told us not to wish in the first place, not to aspire, not to try; to be quiet, to play nice, to shoot low and aspire not at all. They are always wrong. Follow your dreams. Make your wishes. Create the future. And above all, believe in yourself. ~ J. Michael Straczynski
  • proposed by Kalki
2010

Suggestions

The Bitchun Society has had much experience with restores from backup — in the era of the cure for death, people live pretty recklessly. Some people get refreshed a couple dozen times a year. ~ Cory Doctorow, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom. Cory was born that day.

  • 3 ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 09:17, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • 2 121a0012 June 27, 2005 03:52 (UTC) (OK; markup needs work)
  • 1 Kalki 22:20, 16 July 2005 (UTC) this uses obscure terms without much context to go on; I have added a few Cory Doctorow quotes below, that I think would be better.
  • 1 Zarbon 06:24, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

First-time novelists have a tough row to hoe. Our publishers don't have a lot of promotional budget to throw at unknown factors like us. Mostly, we rise and fall based on word-of-mouth. ~ Cory Doctorow

  • 2 Kalki 21:47, 16 July 2007 (UTC) 3 Kalki 22:20, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
  • 2 Zarbon 06:24, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

I'd seen how Imagineering worked when they were on their own, building prototypes and conceptual mockups — I knew that the real bottleneck was the constant review and revisions, the ever-fluctuating groupmind consensus of the ad-hoc that commissioned their work. ~ Cory Doctorow

  • 2 Kalki 21:45, 16 July 2007 (UTC) 3 Kalki 22:20, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 06:24, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

The Bitchun Society had all but done away with any sort of dull, repetitious labor, and what remained—tending bar, mopping toilets —commanded Whuffie aplenty and a life of leisure in your off-hours.

  • 2 Kalki 22:20, 16 July 2005 (UTC) this also uses obscure terms, as the first suggestion for Doctorow did, but fuller context is implied a bit more clearly.
  • 1 Zarbon 06:24, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Of all the people who failed to buy one of my books today, the vast majority did so because they never heard of them, not because they got a free digital copy from the Internet. ~ Cory Doctorow

  • 3 Kalki 21:45, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 06:24, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every opening flower!

~ Isaac Watts ~ (born 17 July 1674)

  • 1 Zarbon 06:24, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small.
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

~ Isaac Watts ~

  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Never give up! it is wiser and better
Always to hope, than once to despair. ~ Martin Farquhar Tupper

  • 3 Zarbon 12:00, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 22:44, 16 July 2008 (UTC) But would extend this to follow with:
    Fling off the load of Doubt's cankering fetter,
    And break the dark spell of tyrannical care.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

“Let byegones be byegones,”—they foolishly say,
And bid me be wise and forget them;
But old recollections are active to-day,
And I can do nought but regret them. ~ Martin Farquhar Tupper

  • 3 Zarbon 12:00, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 22:44, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Your assumption, and the truth, dine at totally separate tables. ~ J. Michael Straczynski

  • 3 Zarbon 12:03, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 22:44, 16 July 2008 (UTC) I am inclined to believe such an expression predates this use of it.
  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities but of their advantages. ~ Adam Smith, he died on July 17, 1790

  • —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Blueshadow (talk • contribs) May 13, 2007 at 22:16 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 22:44, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 3; would prefer it, however, for June 16 (Smith's birthdate). InvisibleSun 22:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

God, from a beautiful necessity, is Love in all he doeth,
Love, a brilliant fire, to gladden or consume:
The wicked work their woe by looking upon love, and hating it:
The righteous find their joys in yearning on its loveliness for ever.

~ Martin Farquhar Tupper

Well-timed silence hath more eloquence than speech. ~ Martin Farquhar Tupper

  • 3 Kalki 19:41, 14 July 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.
  • 3 and strong lean toward 4. Zarbon 18:16, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
