Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Everything that is new or uncommon raises a pleasure in the imagination, because it fills the soul with an agreeable surprise, gratifies its curiosity, and gives it an idea of which it was not before possessed. ~ Joseph Addison
  • selected by Kalki
2005
It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know of wonder and humility. ~ Rachel Carson
  • selected by Kalki
2006
When you get in situations where you cannot afford to make a mistake, it's very hard to do the right thing. So if you're trying to do the right thing, the right thing might be to eliminate the cost of making a mistake rather than try to guess what's right. ~ Ward Cunningham (born 26 May 1949)
  • selected by Kalki
2007
I'm not a fan of classification. It's very difficult to come up with a classification scheme that's useful when what you're most interested in is things that don't fit in, things that you didn't expect. ~ Ward Cunningham
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
Thunder only happens when it's raining.
Players only love you when they're playing.
Say... Women... they will come and they will go.
When the rain washes you clean... you'll know.

~ Stevie Nicks ~
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
You have so many things in the background that you're supposed to do, there's no room left to think. I say, forget all that and ask yourself, "What's the simplest thing that could possibly work?" ~ Ward Cunningham
  • proposed by Kalki
2010

Suggestions

Over and over, people try to design systems that make tomorrow's work easy. But when tomorrow comes it turns out they didn't quite understand tomorrow's work, and they actually made it harder. ~ Ward Cunningham

Charming to the last. You don't know how hard I found it, signing the order to terminate your life. ~ from Star Wars Grand Moff Tarkin Peter Cushing (born May 26)

  • 3 always strongly loved Tarkin and truly, charming to the last. Zarbon 06:06, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Why is it the Mongols of this world always tell us they're defending us against the Mongols? ~ Edward Whittemore (born May 26)

  • 3 because those who say they protect actually do the opposite more than often. Zarbon 05:49, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:50, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

I've seen so goddamn much — I've seen so much that there's no reasonable excuse for looking away, because there can't be anything left that's more terrible than what has come before. ~ Caitlín R. Kiernan (born May 26)

  • 3 because to admit to witnessing all which the past has to offer is to accept what the future yet holds. Zarbon 05:49, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

If there must be resolution and explanation, it must be something worth its weight in mystery. Most times, I'd be content with the mystery. ~ Caitlín R. Kiernan (born May 26)

  • 3 because sometimes the truth can hurt more than the mystery. Nice one. Zarbon 05:49, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:50, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

When you have nothing left to burn, you must set yourself on fire. ~ Dr. Jack Kevorkian (born May 26)

  • 3 because someone who festers and corrupts everything around eventually has no one left to burn but himself, from the built-up anguish and torment that created the heavy burden. This holds a very powerful, enigmatic meaning. Zarbon 22:07, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 22:15, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

First of all, do any of you here think it's a crime to help a suffering human end his agony? ~ Dr. Jack Kevorkian (born May 26)

  • 3 because helping end another's suffering has always been looked at from two different angles, either for it or against it. It brings a very powerful and controversial moral into play. Zarbon 22:07, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

I failed in securing my options for this choice for myself, but I succeeded in verifying the Dark Age is still with us. ~ Dr. Jack Kevorkian (born May 26)

  • 3 because some fundamental laws are truly flawed in essence, whereas this quote truly brings a moral comparison between the Dark Ages and the governments of today. Zarbon 22:07, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

  • 2 Kalki 22:15, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

I will admit, like Socrates and Aristotle and Plato and some other philosophers, that there are instances where the death penalty would seem appropriate. ~ Dr. Jack Kevorkian (born May 26)

  • 3 because as the great philosophers themselves had stated, sometimes death is the only way out. Zarbon 22:07, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

When history looks back, it will prove what I'll die knowing. ~ Dr. Jack Kevorkian (born May 26)

  • 3 because it takes a long time for mankind to understand some things, sometimes hundreds if not thousands of years. But the ability to acknowledge knowing this prior and dying with this knowledge is admirable. Zarbon 22:07, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

You're going to watch a person suffer in agony while somebody's debating? ~ Dr. Jack Kevorkian (born May 26)
