Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Believe those who are seeking the truth; doubt those who find it. ~ André Gide
  • selected by Kalki
2005
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money. I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down. ~ Jack Kerouac (born 12 March 1922)
  • selected by Kalki
2006
Good writers define reality; bad ones merely restate it. A good writer turns fact into truth; a bad writer will, more often than not, accomplish the opposite." ~ Edward Albee (born 12 March 1928)
  • selected by Kalki
2007
They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!" ~ Jack Kerouac (born 12 March 1922)
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2008
All human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all mankind together. ~ Jack Kerouac
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
Life to each individual is a scene of continued feasting in a region of plenty; and when unexpected death arrests its course, it repays with small interest the large debt which it has contracted to the common fund of animal nutrition, from whence the materials of its body have been derived. Thus the great drama of universal life is perpetually sustained; and though the individual actors undergo continual change, the same parts are filled by another and another generation; renewing the face of the earth and the bosom of the deep with endless successions of life and happiness. ~ William Buckland

Quotes by people born this day, already used as QOTD:

  • Every now and then a clear harmonic cry gave new suggestions of a tune that would someday be the only tune in the world and would raise men's souls to joy. ~ Jack Kerouac in On The Road

Suggestions

But let the mind beware, that though the flesh be bugged, the circumstances of existence are pretty glorious. ~ Jack Kerouac

—This unsigned comment is by Japhy (talk • contribs) .
  • 1 for unsigned suggestion. Zarbon 05:16, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 UDScott 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

What difference does it make after all? — anonymity in the world of men is better than fame in heaven, for what's heaven? what's earth? All in the mind. ~ Jack Kerouac

  • 3 InvisibleSun 10:39, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 23:43, 11 March 2008 (UTC) but trimmed to begin at "Anonymity in the world of men..." though I might rank it a 3 if trimmed to simply state "What's heaven? what's earth? All in the mind."
  • 2 In its entirety Zarbon 04:17, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 UDScott 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

I woke up as the sun was reddening; and that was the one distinct time in my life, the strangest moment of all, when I didn't know who I was — I was far away from home, haunted and tired with travel, in a cheap hotel room I'd never seen, hearing the hiss of steam outside, and the creak of the old wood of the hotel, and footsteps upstairs, and all the sad sounds, and I looked at the cracked high ceiling and really didn't know who I was for about fifteen strange seconds. I wasn't scared; I was just somebody else, some stranger, and my whole life was a haunted life, the life of a ghost. I was halfway across America, at the dividing line between the East of my youth and the West of my future. ~ Jack Kerouac

  • 3 InvisibleSun 10:39, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 23:43, 11 March 2008 (UTC) but only if trimmed a bit to start at "I looked at the cracked high ceiling..."

  • 2 UDScott 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Our final excited joy in talking and living to the blank tranced end of all innumerable riotous angelic particulars that had been lurking in our souls all our lives. ~ Jack Kerouac

  • 3 InvisibleSun 10:39, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 23:43, 11 March 2008 (UTC) (but I would prefer to include a little more context of this statement by extending it to:
The car was swaying as Dean and I both swayed to the rhythm and the IT of our final excited joy in talking and living to the blank tranced end of all innumerable riotous angelic particulars that had been lurking in our souls all our lives.
  • 1 Zarbon 04:17, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 UDScott 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Who knows, but that the universe is not one vast sea of compassion actually, the veritable holy honey, beneath all this show of personality and cruelty? ~ Jack Kerouac

I am skeptical about preventing wars. I doubt if they can be prevented. There will always be wars. Judging by past experiences, working for peace now would be as ineffective as ever. It's a law of nature. ~ Wilhelm Frick (born March 12)

  • 3 Zarbon 04:26, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 UDScott 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Hitler was undoubtedly a genius but he lacked self-control. He recognized no limits. Otherwise the thousand-year Reich would have lasted more than twelve years. ~ Wilhelm Frick (born March 12)

  • 3 Zarbon 04:26, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 UDScott 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 17:00, 11 March 2009 (UTC) I cannot agree that Hitler was a genius — he was simply a very bold person, driven by bigotry and arrogance into very brutal paths, in ways tragic for himself and millions of others.
  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:09, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I have a fine sense of the ridiculous, but no sense of humour. ~ Edward Albee

  • 2 because one can understand the laughable but does not have to laugh about it. Zarbon 15:36, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 UDScott 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 17:00, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:09, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

A play is fiction — and fiction is fact distilled into truth. ~ Edward Albee

  • 2 because all fiction is derived from some form of fact. Zarbon 15:36, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 UDScott 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:09, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. ~ Aaron Eckhart as Two-Face from The Dark Knight.

  • 4 Two-Face is my favorite character in Batman history. He's the enthralling image of dual personalities, both mesmerizing and captivating, in all his esteem. This quotation strongly describes his ascent into a schizophrenic state of mind, a double entendre of truth and chance, corrupted by nothing but chance alone. I truly love Two-Face. Zarbon 19:21, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 UDScott 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 17:00, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:09, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

It's not about what I want, it's about what's fair! You thought we could be decent men in an indecent time. But you were wrong. The world is cruel, and the only morality in a cruel world is chance. Unbiased. Unprejudiced. Fair. ~ Aaron Eckhart as Two-Face from The Dark Knight.

  • 3 and strong lean toward a 4. Another powerful image depicted by Two-Face. The raw truth of chance in life is magnificently depicted here. I love this character and all that he stands for. Zarbon 19:21, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 UDScott 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 17:00, 11 March 2009 (UTC) but my lean is toward 1 — because I hold that there are many very dangerous delusions at work in this statement, though I can accept that the character speaking them was in many ways understandably impelled into them.
    • Yes, he was impelled but I really love the quote, it's from one of my alltime favorite scenes in the flick aside from the one I suggested above. I was really hoping that at least one of his quotes would make it this year. Well, there's always next year. - Zarbon 03:08, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Geology has shared the fate of other infant sciences, in being for a while considered hostile to revealed religion; so like them, when fully understood, it will be found a potent and consistent auxiliary to it, exalting our conviction of the Power, and Wisdom, and Goodness of the Creator. ~ William Buckland

Geology holds the keys of one of the kingdoms of nature; and it cannot be said that a science which extends our Knowledge, and by consequence our Power, over a third part of nature, holds a low place among intellectual employments. ~ William Buckland

God is indeed dead.
He died of self-horror
when He saw the creature He had made
in His own image.
~ Irving Layton

  • 2 and lean toward 3. Zarbon 05:18, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

When you argue with your inferiors,
you convince them of only one thing:
they are as clever as you.

My neighbour

as much as
he wants to be envied.

Of all the affections which attend human life, the love of glory is the most ardent. ~ Richard Steele

Among all the diseases of the mind there is not one more epidemical or more pernicious than the love of flattery. ~ Richard Steele

Old England is our home, and Englishmen are we;

Yes, in the poor man's garden grow
Far more than herbs and flowers—
Kind thoughts, contentment, peace of mind,
And joy for weary hours.

Westward the course of empire takes its way;
The four first acts already past,

Doth the reality of sensible things consist in being perceived? or, is it something distinct from their being perceived, and that bears no relation to the mind? ~ George Berkeley

What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? — it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-by. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies. ~ Jack Kerouac in On the Road

I hope it is true that a man can die and yet not only live in others but give them life, and not only life but that great consciousness of life. ~ Jack Kerouac

One must let the play happen to one; one must let the mind loose to respond as it will, to receive impressions, to sense rather than know, to gather rather than immediately understand. ~ Edward Albee
