Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
The propagandist's purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human. ~ Aldous Huxley
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall, that wants it down. ~ Robert Frost (born 26 March 1874)
  • selected by Kalki
2006
He acts without contact,
instructs without meeting,
guides without pointing.
Desires do not conflict with Him,
thoughts do not mingle with Him:
His essence is without qualification,
His action without effort.

~ Mansur al-Hallaj (died 26 March 922)
  • selected by Kalki
2007
The world and the universe is an extremely beautiful place, and the more we understand about it the more beautiful does it appear. It is an immensely exciting experience to be born in the world, born in the universe, and look around you and realise that before you die you have the opportunity of understanding an immense amount about that world and about that universe and about life and about why we're here. We have the opportunity of understanding far, far more than any of our predecessors ever. That is such an exciting possibility, it would be such a shame to blow it and end your life not having understood what there is to understand. ~ Richard Dawkins (born 26 March 1941)
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2008
People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking. I think what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive. That's what it's all finally about. ~ Joseph Campbell (born 26 March 1904)
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2009
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

~ Robert Frost ~
  • proposed by Kalki

Suggestions

If Man exalt himself, I humble him,
If he humble himself, I exalt him;
And I always contradict him,
Until he understands
That he is an incomprehensible monster.
Blaise Pascal (Born June 19, 1623) proposed by Pluke 00:01, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

But men at whiles are sober
And think by fits and starts,
And if they think, they fasten
Their hands upon their hearts.

And how am I to face the odds
Of man’s bedevilment and God’s?

In a world I never made.

Even when poetry has a meaning, as it usually has, it may be inadvisable to draw it out ... and perfect understanding will sometimes almost extinguish pleasure. ~ A. E. Housman

Most of the change we think we see in life

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
~ Robert Frost

  • 3 because this is one of my favorite ones by Frost. Basically, nothing lasts forever is a key principle to understand. Zarbon 04:37, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

And were an epitaph to be my story
I'd have a short one ready for my own.
I would have written of me on my stone:
I had a lover's quarrel with the world.

Wind goes from farm to farm in wave on wave,
But carries no cry of what is hoped to be.
There may be little or much beyond the grave,
But the strong are saying nothing until they see.

We have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us — the labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world. ~ Joseph Campbell

Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion. ~ Tennessee Williams (born March 26, 1911)

A lion wants to eat an antelope's body, but the antelope has very different plans for its body. This is not normally regarded as competition for a resource, but logically it is hard to see why not. ~ Richard Dawkins (born March 26, 1941)

  • 3 because it makes a lot of sense. Zarbon 04:37, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

I think that the appetite for mystery, the enthusiasm for that which we do not understand, is healthy and to be fostered. It is the same appetite which drives the best of true science, and it is an appetite which true science is best qualified to satisfy. ~ Richard Dawkins

  • 1 Zarbon 04:37, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

If you have a faith, it is statistically overwhelmingly likely that it is the same faith as your parents and grandparents had. No doubt soaring cathedrals, stirring music, moving stories and parables, help a bit. But by far the most important variable determining your religion is the accident of birth. The convictions that you so passionately believe would have been a completely different, and largely contradictory, set of convictions, if only you had happened to be born in a different place. Epidemiology, not evidence. ~ Richard Dawkins

  • 3 InvisibleSun 08:29, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 01:14, 23 March 2009 (UTC) * 3 Kalki 03:11, 27 March 2007 (UTC) This is true even if one's "faith" is in atheistic assumptions based on materialistic ideas about reality and the life processes, and "moving stories and parables" that equate all religious faiths with mere ignorance and superstition, fraud and delusion, and all modern scientific faiths with clear "common sense" materialistic observations. I am speaking as someone who has examined the worth and absurdities of many religious and scientific traditions and am appalled at the fallacious presumptions inherent in most. There is certainly need for far greater humility and compassion among nearly all people, whatever traditions they embrace or reject, whether they be defined as scientific, religious, or political.
  • 1 Zarbon 04:37, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further. ~ Richard Dawkins

Scientific beliefs are supported by evidence, and they get results. Myths and faiths are not and do not. ~ Richard Dawkins (date of birth)

  • 4 ~ Jeff Q (talk) 05:02, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
  • 4 because this is strong. It holds truth to destroying myth and faith which has falsely captivated many. Zarbon 04:37, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 01:14, 23 March 2009 (UTC) This is hardly historically accurate. Scientific beliefs become supported by evidence, and they do get results, if they are in sufficient accord with underlying and all-encompassing aspects of Reality. But so do many myths and faiths, even when they have been deeply flawed and deficient, and the dichotomies between scientific theories and faith in myths are not so absolute as they are made here to falsely seem. Even in the realms of the modern sciences we advance in our ideas from faith to faith and myth to myth, such as the myth of the material atom with orbiting electron particles rather than electron "clouds" determined by the resonance of waveform potentials ... from 4 dimensional physics to perhaps 11 dimensional physics... and the ends of all our explorations and ideas of what ultimate "Reality" is in terms of significant forces, dimensions and fundamental substances or energy patterns are hardly in sight. ~ Kalki 01:14, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 21:42, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

In the Name of Allah the Merciful, the Compassionate, Who manifests Himself through everything, the revelation of a clear knowing to whomsoever He wishes, peace be upon you, my son. This praise belongs to Allah Who manifests Himself on the head of a pin to whom He wishes, so that one testifies that He is not, and another testifies that there is none other than He. But the witnessing in the denying of Him is not rejected, and the witnessing in the affirming of Him is not praised. ~ Mansur Al-Hallaj

I’d like to get away from earth awhile
And then come back to it and begin over.
May no fate willfully misunderstand me
And half grant what I wish and snatch me away
Not to return. Earth’s the right place for love:
I don’t know where it’s likely to go better.

But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

I have kept hidden in the instep arch
Of an old cedar at the waterside
A broken drinking goblet like the Grail
Under a spell so the wrong ones can't find it,
So can't get saved, as Saint Mark says they mustn't.
(I stole the goblet from the children's playhouse.)
Here are your waters and your watering place.
Drink and be whole again beyond confusion.

The stately ship is seen no more,
The fragile skiff attains the shore;
And while the great and wise decay,
And all their trophies pass away,
Some sudden thought, some careless rhyme,
Still floats above the wrecks of Time. ~ William Edward Hartpole Lecky
