Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out. ~ Hugh Latimer
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Political language — and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists — is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. ~ George Orwell (born 25 June 1903)
  • proposed by User:Kalki
2006
The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them. ~ George Orwell (born 25 June 1903)
  • proposed by User:Kalki
2007
I always disagree ... when people end up saying that we can only combat Communism, Fascism or what not if we develop an equal fanaticism. It appears to me that one defeats the fanatic precisely by not being a fanatic oneself, but on the contrary by using one's intelligence. In the same way, a man can kill a tiger because he is not like a tiger and uses his brain to invent the rifle, which no tiger could ever do. ~ George Orwell
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2008
By "nationalism" I mean first of all the habit of assuming that human beings can be classified like insects and that whole blocks of millions or tens of millions of people can be confidently labelled "good" or "bad." ... By "patriotism" I mean devotion to a particular place and a particular way of life, which one believes to be the best in the world but has no wish to force on other people. Patriotism is of its nature defensive, both militarily and culturally. Nationalism, on the other hand, is inseperable from the desire for power. ~ George Orwell
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. ~ George Orwell
  • proposed by Kalki

Fall is my favorite season in Los Angeles, watching the birds change color and fall from the trees. David Letterman

  • 1 Kalki 11:54, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC) I feel this particular quote might be better in the fall perhaps.
  • 1 Zarbon 04:32, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

In a Society in which there is no law, and in theory no compulsion, the only arbiter of behaviour is public opinion. But public opinion, because of the tremendous urge to conformity in gregarious animals, is less tolerant than any system of law. ~ George Orwell (born 25 June 1903)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 19:29, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 Zarbon 04:32, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Properly speaking, there is no such thing as revenge. Revenge is an act which you want to commit when you are powerless and because you are powerless: as soon as the sense of impotence is removed, the desire evaporates also. ~ George Orwell

  • 3 InvisibleSun 19:29, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 20:36, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 although revenge is at times sweet, the desire to commit it may evaporate just as easily. Zarbon 04:32, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Each generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it. ~ George Orwell

  • 3 InvisibleSun 19:29, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 20:36, 24 June 2007 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
  • 3 because this is true and I agree. If only all people were less full of themselves and learned to appreciate the intelligence of all history. Zarbon 04:32, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Certainly we ought to be discontented, we ought not simply to find out ways of making the best of a bad job, and yet if we kill all pleasure in the actual process of life, what sort of future are we preparing for ourselves? If a man cannot enjoy the return of spring, why should he be happy in a labour-saving Utopia? What will he do with the leisure that the machine will give him? ~ George Orwell

  • 3 InvisibleSun 19:29, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 20:36, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 Zarbon 04:32, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

If you turn the other cheek, you will get a harder blow on it than you got on the first one. This does not always happen, but it is to be expected, and you ought not to complain if it does happen. ~ George Orwell

  • 3 InvisibleSun 19:29, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 00:31, 23 June 2008 (UTC) 3 Kalki 20:36, 24 June 2007 (UTC) tactical reduction of my ranking ... I still have a strong desire to use this eventually, but not this year. ~ Kalki 00:32, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 4 because I like the powerful moral reference to the teaching of Jesus Zarbon 04:32, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men. ... Bully-worship, under various disguises, has become a universal religion, and such truisms as that a machine-gun is still a machine-gun even when a "good" man is squeezing the trigger ... have turned into heresies which it is actually becoming dangerous to utter. ~ George Orwell

  • 3 Kalki 20:36, 24 June 2007 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
