2007
By the theory of our Government majorities rule, but this right is not an arbitrary or unlimited one. It is a right to be exercised in subordination to the Constitution and in conformity to it. One great object of the Constitution was to restrain majorities from oppressing minorities or encroaching upon their just rights. Minorities have a right to appeal to the Constitution as a shield against such oppression. ~ James K. Polk (born 2 November 1795)
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2008
You know, "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely"? It's the same with powerlessness. Absolute powerlessness corrupts absolutely. Einstein said everything had changed since the atom was split, except the way we think. We have to think anew. ~ Studs Terkel (recent death)
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2009
Hunting hawks do not belong in cages, no matter how much a man covets their grace, no matter how golden the bars. They are far more beautiful soaring free. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

No general method for the solution of questions in the theory of probabilities can be established which does not explicitly recognize, not only the special numerical bases of the science, but also those universal laws of thought which are the basis of all reasoning, and which, whatever they may be as to their essence, are at least mathematical as to their form. ~ George Boole


The general laws of Nature are not, for the most part, immediate objects of perception. They are either inductive inferences from a large body of facts, the common truth in which they express, or, in their origin at least, physical hypotheses of a causal nature serving to explain phenomena with undeviating precision, and to enable us to predict new combinations of them. They are in all cases, and in the strictest sense of the term, probable conclusions, approaching, indeed, ever and ever nearer to certainty, as they receive more and more of the confirmation of experience. But of the character of probability, in the strict and proper sense of that term, they are never wholly divested. On the other hand, the knowledge of the laws of the mind does not require as its basis any extensive collection of observations. The general truth is seen in the particular instance, and it is not confirmed by the repetition of instances. ~ George Boole

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Good soldiers never pass up a chance to eat or sleep. They never know how much they'll be called on to do before the next chance. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Endure pain, find joy, and make your own meaning, because the universe certainly isn't going to supply it. Always be a moving target. Live. Live. Live. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Power is a live thing, by which you reach out to grasp the future. Revenge is a dead thing, reaching out from the past to grasp you. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Men may move mountains, but ideas move men. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

There is no safety. Only varying states of risk. And failure. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

A hundred objective measurements didn't sum the worth of a garden; only the delight of its users did that. Only the use made it mean something. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself. … Guard your honor. Let your reputation fall where it will. And outlive the bastards. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

We don't just march on the future, we charge it. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Tests are a gift. And great tests are a great gift. To fail the test is a misfortune. But to refuse the test is to refuse the gift, and something worse, more irrevocable, than misfortune. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.

I can love you. I can grieve for you, or with you. I can share your pain. But I cannot judge you. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

The really unforgivable acts are committed by calm men in beautiful green silk rooms, who deal death wholesale, by the shipload, without lust, or anger, or desire, or any redeeming emotion to excuse them but cold fear of some pretended future. But the crimes they hope to prevent in that future are imaginary. The ones they commit in the present — they are real. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Like integrity, love of life was not a subject to be studied, it was a contagion to be caught. And you had to catch it from someone who had it. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Those who can, do; those who can't, teach. And those who can't teach, go into administration. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

A lot of writers write as if the hero sort of popped out of the box at age 22 fully formed. And one thing that raising children does is give you some sense of how human beings really are put together. So when you go to put together a character you can have a more realistic sense of where people really come from, why they really behave the way they do and what a tremendous amount of life and complexity lies behind every human being. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

If you make it plain you like people, it's hard for them to resist liking you back. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

If the truth doesn't save us, what does that say about us? ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Surely only correct understanding could lead to correct action. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

The gods’ most savage curses come upon us as answers to our own prayers, you know. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

If you desire a man to tell you comfortable lies about your prowess, and so fetter any hope of true excellence, I'm sure you may find one anywhere. Not all prisons are made of iron bars. Some are made of feather beds. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

All great human deeds both consume and transform their doers. Consider an athlete, or a scientist, or an artist, or an independent business creator. In the service of their goals they lay down time and energy and many other choices and pleasures; in return, they become most truly themselves. A false destiny may be spotted by the fact that it consumes without transforming, without giving back the enlarged self. ~ Lois McMaster Bujold

  • 3 Kalki 23:38, 1 November 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

I was suddenly arrested by what seemed to be an awful voice proclaiming the words, "Eternity! Eternity! Eternity!" It reached my very soul — my whole man shook — it brought me like Saul to the ground. The great depravity and sinfulness of my heart were set before me, and the gulf of everlasting destruction to which I was verging. I was made to bitterly cry out, "If there is no God — doubtless there is a hell." I found myself in the midst of it. ~ Stephen Grellet
