Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
If we begin with certainties, we shall end in doubts; if we begin with doubts, and are patient, we shall end in certainties. ~ Marcus Aurelius
  • selected by Kalki
2005
You say that you are my judge. I don't know if you are — but take care not to judge wrongly, lest you place yourself in great danger. ~ Jehanne Darc (Jeanne d'Arc; Joan of Arc) (canonized 16 May 1920)
  • selected by Kalki
2006
I like quoting Einstein. Know why? Because nobody dares contradict you. ~ Studs Terkel (born 16 May 1912)
  • selected by Kalki
2007
The universe is flux, life is opinion. ~ Marcus Aurelius
  • proposed by Aphaia
2008
Nothing happens to anybody which he is not fitted by nature to bear. ~ Marcus Aurelius
  • proposed by Aphaia
2009

Suggestions

Whatever is in any way beautiful hath its source of beauty in itself, and is complete in itself; praise forms no part of it. So it is none the worse nor the better for being praised. ~ Marcus Aurelius

  • 3 Aphaia 18:07, 14 May 2007 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 21:40, 14 May 2007 (UTC) with a lean toward 4, despite this not being actually related to the date
  • 1 Zarbon 05:20, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Perhaps the Marcus Aurelius quotes should be moved to April 26. - InvisibleSun 21:42, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
I agree this last remaining suggestion for Aurelius should be moved to that date, as it seems Aphaia had originally suggested them here because Aurelius had been quoted by me here in 2004, before the policy of generally preferring some tie-in to the date was firmly established. ~ Kalki 00:18, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

I have learned, by some experience, that virtue and patriotism, vice and selfishness, are found in all parties, and that they differ less in their motives than in the policies they pursue. ~ William H. Seward (born May 16, 1801)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 21:42, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 23:45, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Zarbon 04:42, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

The slave system is one of constant danger, distrust, suspicion, and watchfulness. It debases those whose toil alone can produce wealth and resources for defence, to the lowest degree of which human nature is capable, to guard against mutiny and insurrection, and thus wastes energies which otherwise might be employed in national development and aggrandizement. The free-labor system educates all alike, and by opening all the fields of industrial employment and all the departments of authority, to the unchecked and equal rivalry of all classes of men, at once secures universal contentment, and brings into the highest possible activity all the physical, moral, and social energies of the whole state. ~ William H. Seward

  • 4 If this is considered too long, it could begin at the words "The free-labor system..." - InvisibleSun 21:59, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 23:45, 15 May 2008 (UTC) and with very strong preference for the full version.
  • 2 but only if it is shortened as Invisible suggested. Zarbon 04:42, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
