Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty deeds. For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May. ~ Sir Thomas Malory

"DON'T PANIC"
~ Douglas Adams in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
  • selected by Kalki
2006
I react pragmatically. Where the market works, I'm for that. Where the government is necessary, I'm for that. I'm deeply suspicious of somebody who says, "I'm in favor of privatization," or, "I'm deeply in favor of public ownership." I'm in favor of whatever works in the particular case. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith (recent death)
  • selected by Kalki
2007
A man must be excessively stupid, as well as uncharitable, who believes that there is no virtue but on his own side, and that there are not men as honest as himself who may differ from him in political principles. ~ Joseph Addison

What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to the human soul. ~ Joseph Addison

2009
When an angel by divine command
With rising tempests shakes a guilty land,
Such as of late o'er pale Britannia past,
Calm and serene he drives the furious blast;
And, pleas'd th' Almighty's orders to perform,
Rides in the whirlwind, and directs the storm.

~ Joseph Addison ~

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

  • The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire. ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:57, 30 April 2009 (UTC) -->
  • The history of a battle, is not unlike the history of a ball. Some individuals may recollect all the little events of which the great result is the battle won or lost, but no individual can recollect the order in which, or the exact moment at which, they occurred, which makes all the difference as to their value or importance. ~ Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington

Suggestions

Good nature is more agreeable in conversation than wit, and gives a certain air to the countenance which is more amiable than beauty. ~ Joseph Addison (born May 1, 1672)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 03:59, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 13:12, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 04:50, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

The man who will live above his present circumstances is in great danger of living in a little time much beneath them; or as the Italian proverb runs, "The man who lives by hope, will die by hunger." ~ Joseph Addison

  • 3 InvisibleSun 03:59, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 13:12, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 because hope alone is not enough to live, especially under difficult circumstances. Zarbon 04:50, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Nature does nothing without purpose or uselessly. ~ Joseph Addison

  • 1 Kalki 20:38, 30 April 2009 (UTC) 3 Kalki 14:00, 30 April 2007 (UTC) with a lean toward an eventual 3 or even a 4, but much prefer a couple other options suggested far above this one, for now.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 18:22, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 4 Aphaia 19:24, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 because what happens, happens for reason. Zarbon 04:50, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men. ~ Joseph Addison Anonymous

  • 3 Kalki 14:00, 30 April 2007 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4. but this seems to be an anonymous proverb, and thus not attributed to Addison.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 18:22, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Aphaia 19:24, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 Zarbon 04:50, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

A man's first care should be to avoid the reproaches of his own heart, his next to escape the censures of the world. ~ Joseph Addison

  • 3 Kalki 14:00, 30 April 2007 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 18:22, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Aphaia 19:24, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 04:50, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

On you, my lord, with anxious fear I wait,
And from your judgment must expect my fate.
~ Joseph Addison (born May 1, 1672)

  • 3 because as the main agenda of Greek philosophy has always been, one can not escape from one's own fate, especially when one does not know one's own fate to begin with. Beautiful. Zarbon 15:08, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 20:03, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 20:38, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Arguments out of a pretty mouth are unanswerable. ~ Joseph Addison (born May 1, 1672)

  • 2 InvisibleSun 20:03, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 20:38, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Better to die ten thousand deaths,
Than wound my honour.
~ Joseph Addison (born May 1, 1672)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 20:03, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 20:38, 30 April 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 3 — but this can be interpreted with both noble and ignoble senses of the word "honour"

How beautiful is death, when earn'd by virtue!
Who would not be that youth? What pity is it
That we can die but once to serve our country!
~ Joseph Addison (born May 1, 1672)

  • 3 because true virtue and loyalty comes from service to one's country. Zarbon 15:08, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 20:03, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 20:38, 30 April 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 3.

In doing what we ought we deserve no praise,
Because it is our duty.
~ Joseph Addison (born May 1, 1672)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 20:03, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 20:38, 30 April 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 3.

My death and life,
My bane and antidote, are both before me.
~ Joseph Addison (born May 1, 1672)

  • 3 because in some instances, everything flashes before one's eyes, life and death alike, before the end. The comparison of bane and suffering to that of life and the antidote expressed in the form of death is also magnificent. Zarbon 15:08, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 20:03, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 20:38, 30 April 2009 (UTC) but could use more context.

I shall endeavor to enliven morality with wit, and to temper wit with morality. ~ Joseph Addison (born May 1, 1672)

  • 3 because there is a healthy balance expressed here. I'd go along moreso with tempering the wit with morality though. Zarbon 15:08, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 20:03, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 20:38, 30 April 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 3.

Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves. All we need is to imagine our ability to love developing until it embraces the totality of men and the earth. ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

  • 1 Zarbon 05:42, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 20:38, 30 April 2009 (UTC) though most of this was already used, on 9 December 2004.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:57, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

We only have to look around us to see how complexity and psychic temperature are still rising: and rising no longer on the scale of the individual but now on that of the planet. This indication is so familiar to us that we cannot but recognize the objective, experiential, reality of a transformation of the planet as a whole. ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

  • 1 Zarbon 05:42, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 20:38, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:57, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

My heart is broken by the terrible loss I have sustained in my old friends and companions and my poor soldiers. Believe me, nothing except a battle lost can be half so melancholy as a battle won. ~ Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington

  • 3 and lean toward 4. Zarbon 22:55, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:02, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 23:53, 30 April 2009 (UTC) I would rank this higher, but the last part of it was already used, on 18 June 2008

I believe I forgot to tell you I was made a Duke. ~ Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington

  • 2 Zarbon 22:55, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

  • 2 Kalki 23:53, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

All the business of war, and indeed all the business of life, is to endeavour to find out what you don't know by what you do; that's what I called "guessing what was at the other side of the hill." ~ Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington

  • 2 Zarbon 22:55, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:02, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience. ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
