Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make heaven of Hell, and a hell of Heaven. ~ John Milton
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush afire with God: but only he who sees, takes off his shoes, the rest sit round it, and pluck blackberries, and daub their natural faces unaware... ~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning (born 6 March 1806)
  • selected by Kalki
2006
Give thought to life and liberty. ~ Cyrano de Bergerac (born 6 March 1619)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
For all eternity has God not occupied His intellect with the cabbage's birth as well as yours? It also seems that He has necessarily provided more for the birth of the vegetable than for the thinking being... Will anyone say that we are born in the image of the Sovereign Being, while cabbages are not? ~ Cyrano de Bergerac
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
You imagine that what you can't understand is either spiritual or does not exist. The conclusion is quite wrong; rather there are obviously a million things in the universe that we would need a million quite different organs to understand ... someone blind from birth cannot imagine the beauty of a landscape, the colors of a painting or the shadings of an iris. He will imagine them as something palpable, edible, audible or olfactory. Likewise, if I were to explain to you what I perceive by the senses you do not have, you would interpret it as something that could be heard, seen, touched, smelled or tasted; but it is not like that. ~ Cyrano de Bergerac
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Who watches the Watchmen?
~ Juvenal ~
(release date of the Watchmen film)
  • proposed by Kalki
2010

Suggestions

The key to happiness is having dreams; the key to success is making them come true. ~ James Allen

  • initially proposed on the posting page (without author) by Tara who had "read it off a 'Hallmark e-card" 11:48, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 21:24, 4 March 2006 (UTC) no clear linkage to the date, but the suggestion prompted me to do some research and create a page for James Allen.

I seek no copy now of life's first half:
Leave here the pages with long musing curled,
And write me new my future's epigraph,
New angel mine, unhoped for in the world!
~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning (born March 6, 1806)

If you say that there are elephants flying in the sky, people are not going to believe you. But if you say that there are four hundred and twenty-five elephants in the sky, people will probably believe you. ~ Gabriel García Márquez (born March 6, 1927)

A famous writer who wants to continue writing has to be constantly defending himself against fame. I don't really like to say this because it never sounds sincere, but I would really have liked for my books to have been published after my death, so I wouldn't have to go through all this business of fame and being a great writer. In my case, the only advantage to fame is that I have been able to give it a political use. Otherwise, it is quite uncomfortable. The problem is that you're famous for twenty-four hours a day, and you can't say, "Okay, I won't be famous until tomorrow," or press a button and say, "I won't be famous here or now." ~ Gabriel García Márquez

Some people think that friendliness is a sign of weakness, when in reality it is a sign of strength. ~ Wolfgang Singer

  • I just kike this quote and think someday it should be qotm.--McNoddy 14:24, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 23:23, 5 March 2007 (UTC) This might fare better if placed on his birthdate (29 November), though I am assuming that Wolfgang Singer is Hans Wolfgang Singer.

Most men judge only by their senses and let themselves be persuaded by what they see... On top of that, insufferable vanity has convinced humans that nature has been made only for them, as though the sun, a huge body four hundred and thirty-four times as large as the earth, had been lit only to ripen our crab apples and cabbages. ~ Cyrano de Bergerac

A man contains all that is needed to make up a tree; likewise, a tree contains all that is needed to make up a man. Thus, finally, all things meet in all things, but we need a Prometheus to distill it. ~ Cyrano de Bergerac

Take from my head the thorn-wreath brown!
No mortal grief deserves that crown.
O supreme Love, chief misery,
The sharp regalia are for Thee
Whose days eternally go on!

For us, — whatever's undergone,
Thou knowest, willest what is done,
Grief may be joy misunderstood;
Only the Good discerns the good.
I trust Thee while my days go on.

~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning ~

Even if a king defeats his enemy in battle, that still doesn't settle anything. There are other, less numerous armies of philosophers and scientists, and their contests determine the true triumph or defeat of nations. ~ Cyrano de Bergerac

If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all. ~ Michelangelo

As when, O lady mine!
With chiselled touch
The stone unhewn and cold
Becomes a living mould.
The more the marble wastes,
The more the statue grows.
~ Michelangelo

A little work, a little play
To keep us going—and so good-day!

A little warmth, a little light
Of love’s bestowing—and so, good-night.

A little fun, to match the sorrow
Of each day’s growing—and so, good-morrow!

A little trust that when we die
We reap our sowing—and so—good-bye!
~ George du Maurier

Ah, brief is Life,
Love’s short sweet way,
With dreamings rife,
And then—Good-day!

And Life is vain—
Hope’s vague delight,
Grief’s transient pain,
And then—Good-night.
~ George du Maurier

  • This is not by DuMaurier; as the article shows, it is by Léon Montenaeken. InvisibleSun 23:29, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Mortality, behold and fear!
What a change of flesh is here!
Think how many royal bones
Sleep within this heap of stones:
Here they lie had realms and lands,
Who now want strength to stir their hands.
~ Francis Beaumont (birth unknown/date of death)

  • 3 and strong lean toward a 4. Zarbon 02:49, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 02:53, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 UDScott 15:29, 4 March 2009 (UTC) - I like the quote, but I'm not sure what ties it to this date.
