Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004 
The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves. ~ Carl Jung
  • selected by Kalki
2005 
I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom. ~ Bob Dylan (born 24 May 1941)
  • selected by Kalki
2006 
Every failure is a step to success. ~ William Whewell (born 24 May 1794)
  • proposed by UDScott
2007
Freedom of expression is the matrix, the indispensable condition, of nearly every other form of freedom. ~ Benjamin N. Cardozo (born 24 May 1870)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
Every failure is a step to success. Every detection of what is false directs us towards what is true: every trial exhausts some tempting form of error. ~ William Whewell
  • proposed by Kalki (proposed and chosen without recognition that part of it had been used in 2006)
2009
How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

~ Bob Dylan ~

Suggestions

Our course of advance... is neither a straight line nor a curve. It is a series of dots and dashes. ~ Benjamin N. Cardozo (date of birth)

  • 3 Kalki 00:04, 24 May 2006 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
  • 3 Herby talk thyme 13:54, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
  • 2 because life is filled with difficulties, it is never simplistic and the comparison is well seen here. Zarbon 05:34, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:31, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Man is the interpreter of nature, science the right interpretation. ~ William Whewell (born May 24)

  • 3 because science is a deciphered truth, based on fact and fact alone. Misinterpretation has never played a role in the scientific defense, even when man has interpreted as such from nature itself. Zarbon 05:34, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 19:23, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:31, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Magic words and incantations are as fatal to our science as they are to any other. Methods, when classified and separated, acquire their true bearing and perspective as a means to an end, not as ends in themselves. We seek to find peace of mind in the word, the formula, the ritual. The hope is illusion. ~ Benjamin N. Cardozo (born May 24)

  • 3 because the hope alone will not solve the puzzle, the enigma. In order to find the pathway within the labyrinth of formula, one must first understand how magic has never been a solid status of word or ritual. Zarbon 05:34, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 19:23, 23 May 2008 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:31, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

If a nation does not want a monarchy, change the nation's mind. If a nation does not need a monarchy, change the nation's needs. ~ Jan Smuts (born May 24)

  • 3 because the needs and wants of man can be changed. Zarbon 05:33, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 19:23, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 InvisibleSun 22:31, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

The emotional appeal of nature is tremendous, sometimes almost more than one can bear. ~ Jan Smuts (born May 24)

  • 2 because the effects of nature on one can be irreperable. Zarbon 05:33, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 but would extend this to "The intimate rapport with nature is one of the most precious things in life. Nature is indeed very close to us; sometimes closer than hands and feet, of which in truth she is but the extension. The emotional appeal of nature is tremendous, sometimes almost more than one can bear."
  • 3 For the extended quotation. - InvisibleSun 22:31, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

It is the army that finally makes a citizen of you; without it you still have a chance, however slim, to remain a human being. ~ Joseph Brodsky

  • 3 Zarbon 04:03, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 19:23, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:31, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

The formula for prison is a lack of space counterbalanced by a surplus of time. ~ Joseph Brodsky

  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:31, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Five or six hundred [aristocratic] heads lopped off would have assured you repose and happiness; a false humanity has restrained your arm and suspended your blows; it will cost the lives of millions of your brothers. ~ Jean-Paul Marat

  • 2 Zarbon 04:07, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 19:23, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 22:31, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

We may try to see things as objectively as we please. None the less, we can never see them with any eyes except our own. ~ Benjamin N. Cardozo

  • 3 Kalki 19:23, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:31, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Zarbon 00:08, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

No force however great can stretch a cord however fine into an horizontal line which is accurately straight. ~ William Whewell

  • 2 Kalki 19:23, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 I remember seeing this quotation, beginning "Hence no force," etc., cited in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations as "an example of accidental rhyme and metre." In Bartlett's the quotation begins with "And so no force," etc. It might be better to restore the original phrasing, whichever it might be, so as to emphasize, by the cadence of the words, the serendipity of this rhymed-and-metered prose. - InvisibleSun 22:31, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 00:08, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

~ Bob Dylan ~
