Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
The difference between a hooker and a ho ain't nothin' but a fee. ~ Cheryl James ("Salt" of the rap group "Salt 'N' Pepa")
  • proposed by IP 66.157.59.118
2005
I'm the guy they used to call Deep Throat. ~ W. Mark Felt (recent revelation of identity)
  • selected by Kalki
2006
A lover without indiscretion is no lover at all. Circumspection and devotion are a contradiction in terms. ~ Thomas Hardy (born 2 June 1840)
  • selected by Kalki
2007
To find themselves utterly alone at night where company is desirable and expected makes some people fearful; but a case more trying by far to the nerves is to discover some mysterious companionship when intuition, sensation, memory, analogy, testimony, probability, induction — every kind of evidence in the logician's list — have united to persuade consciousness that it is quite in isolation. ~ Thomas Hardy
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
The capacity to produce social chaos is the last resort of desperate people. ~ Cornel West
  • proposed by Zarbon
2009
The Poet's License! — 't is the right,
Within the rule of duty,
To look on all delightful things
Throughout the world of beauty.

To gaze with rapture at the stars
That in the skies are glowing;
To see the gems of perfect dye
That in the woods are growing, —
And more than sage astronomer,
And more than learned florist,
To read the glorious homilies
Of Firmament and Forest.

~ John Godfrey Saxe ~

  • proposed by Kalki

Suggestions

If you are not doing what you love, you are wasting your time. ~ Billy Joel

  • 2 Kalki 20:53, 1 June 2007 (UTC) Good quote but no clear relation to the date; the one by Martha Washington (upon a similar theme) that I've added below is related to her birthday today.
  • 1 Zarbon 13:19, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

I am fond of only what comes from the heart. ~ Martha Washington

  • 1. This is an unsourced quote. InvisibleSun 22:46, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 13:19, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

The ancient pulse of germ and birth
Was shrunken hard and dry,
And every spirit upon earth
Seemed fervourless as I.

At once a voice arose among
The bleak twigs overhead
In a full-hearted evensong
Of joy illimited;
An aged thrush, frail, gaunt, and small,
In blast-beruffled plume,
Had chosen thus to fling his soul
Upon the growing gloom.

So little cause for carolings
Of such ecstatic sound
Was written on terrestrial things
Afar or nigh around,
That I could think there trembled through
His happy good-night air
Some blessed Hope, whereof he knew
And I was unaware.

~ Thomas Hardy ~

  • 1 Zarbon 13:19, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Above the plain rose the hill, above the hill rose the barrow, and above the barrow rose the figure. Above the figure was nothing that could be mapped elsewhere than on a celestial globe. ~ Thomas Hardy

To be an intellectual really means to speak a truth that allows suffering to speak. ~ Cornel West

  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:12, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 23:59, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

They don't pay me to think, they pay me to be an Admiral. ~ Archibald Berkeley Milne

  • 1. This is an unsourced quote. InvisibleSun 22:12, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen!
~ John Godfrey Saxe

  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:12, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 23:59, 1 June 2008 (UTC) but would extend this to include the lines from the previous stanza:
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right
And all were in the wrong.

I remind young people everywhere I go, one of the worst things the older generation did was to tell them for twenty-five years "Be successful, be successful, be successful" as opposed to "Be great, be great, be great". There's a qualititative difference. ~ Cornel West

  • 3 Kalki 20:49, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

You can't lead the people if you don't love the people. You can't save the people, if you don't serve the people. ~ Cornel West

  • 3 Kalki 20:49, 1 June 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.

When Nature gives a gorgeous rose,
Or yields the simplest fern,
She writes this motto on the leaves, —
"To whom it may concern!"
And so it is the poet comes
And revels in her bowers,
And, — though another hold the land,
Is owner of the flowers.

~ John Godfrey Saxe ~
