Quotes of the day from previous years:

2003
Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born. ~ Anaïs Nin
  • selected by Kalki
2004
Whether we and our politicians know it or not, Nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do. ~ Wendell Berry
  • selected by Kalki
2005
I found a book on how to be invisible —
On the edge of the labyrinth —
Under a veil you must never lift —
Pages you must never turn —
In the Labyrinth.

~ Kate Bush in "How to Be Invisible" on Aerial
  • proposed by Kalki (Aerial, Bush's first album in 12 years, was released internationally on 7 November 2005)
2006
The evil that is in the world always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding. On the whole men are more good than bad; that, however, isn't the real point. But they are more or less ignorant, and it is this that we call vice or virtue; the most incorrigible vice being that of an ignorance which fancies it knows everything and therefore claims for itself the right to kill. There can be no true goodness, nor true love, without the utmost clear-sightedness. ~ Albert Camus
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2007
Do not wait for the Last Judgment. It takes place every day. ~ Albert Camus
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
Do not be deceived by the way men of bad faith misuse words and names ...Things are set up as contraries that are not even in the same category. Listen to me: the opposite of radical is superficial, the opposite of liberal is stingy; the opposite of conservative is destructive. Thus I will describe myself as a radical conservative liberal; but certain of the tainted red fish will swear that there can be no such fish as that. Beware of those who use words to mean their opposites. At the same time have pity on them, for usually this trick is their only stock in trade. ~ R. A. Lafferty (born 7 November 1914)
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
Political progress will only take place if sufficient security exists. ~ David Petraeus
  • proposed by Zarbon

If I try to seize this self of which I feel sure, if I try to define and to summarize it, it is nothing but water slipping through my fingers. I can sketch one by one all the aspects it is able to assume, all those likewise that have been attributed to it, this upbringing, this origin, this ardor or these silences, this nobility or this vileness. But aspects cannot be added up. ~ Albert Camus

  • 3 Kalki 19:43, 6 November 2007 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.
  • 1 Zarbon 05:47, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Life can be magnificent and overwhelming — that is its whole tragedy. Without beauty, love, or danger it would almost be easy to live. ~ Albert Camus

You stand in front of a million doors,
Each one holds a million more.
~ Kate Bush ~ (2005: international release date of her first album in 12 yrs)

  • 3 Kalki 00:10, 6 November 2005 (UTC) I am no longer strongly inclined to use this here, as the release was last year, but will keep it as a potential option in years to come.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 16:53, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
  • 0. I can't find this quote on the Kate Bush page. - InvisibleSun 20:50, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 05:47, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Wrong Prong, Bong Gong. ~ R. A. Lafferty

  • 3 Kalki 03:28, 13 November 2007 (UTC) Somewhat enigmatic, but it is meant to be in the book as well.
  • 1 Zarbon 05:47, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 20:50, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Insurrection is an art, and like all arts has its own laws. ~ Leon Trotsky (born November 7)

  • 3 because insurrection when planned correctly can recreate history, much like art can recreate an image. Nice comparison by Trotsky, whom remains one of my personal favorites. Zarbon 16:53, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Learning carries within itself certain dangers because out of necessity one has to learn from one's enemies. ~ Leon Trotsky (born November 7)

  • 3 because to learn from one's enemies carries the danger of becoming like them. It's a great quote to say the least. Zarbon 16:53, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

You may not be interested in the dialectic, but the dialectic is interested in you. ~ Leon Trotsky (born November 7)

  • 3 because even for someone uninterested in politics, government, etc. will find those things interested in that person's life. This is extremely true. Zarbon 16:53, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

I write as clearly as I am able to. I sometimes tackle ideas and notions that are relatively complex, and it is very difficult to be sure that I am conveying them in the best way. Anyone who goes beyond cliche phrases and cliche ideas will have this trouble. ~ R. A. Lafferty (born 7 November 1914)

  • 3 Kalki 14:04, 31 July 2008 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.
  • 1 Zarbon 12:49, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 20:50, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience. ~ R. A. Lafferty

  • 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

True love is that we should hate whatever interferes with our vision of the high and the lowly. ~ R. A. Lafferty

  • 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Listen now to a series of sayings that always come hard to brave people. Our own great movement will grow with its own impetus wherever it is not blighted. We will break up persons of blight and centers of blight. But often, and this will be the hard part for all of you to understand, we will warn and advise before we kill. And quite often we will not kill at all. Try to understand this.. ~ R. A. Lafferty

  • 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

One always finds one's burden again. But Sisyphus teaches the higher fidelity that negates the gods and raises rocks. He too concludes that all is well. This universe henceforth without a master seems to him neither sterile nor futile. Each atom of that stone, each mineral flake of that night filled mountain, in itself forms a world. The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy. ~ Albert Camus

  • 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

"I conclude that all is well," says Oedipus, and that remark is sacred. It echoes in the wild and limited universe of man. It teaches that all is not, has not been, exhausted. It drives out of this world a god who had come into it with dissatisfaction and a preference for futile suffering. It makes of fate a human matter, which must be settled among men. ~ Albert Camus

  • 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Myths are made for the imagination to breathe life into them. ~ Albert Camus

  • 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

In that daily effort in which intelligence and passion mingle and delight each other, the absurd man discovers a discipline that will make up the greatest of his strengths. The required diligence and doggedness and lucidity thus resemble the conqueror's attitude. To create is likewise to give a shape to one's fate. For all these characters, their work defines them at least as much as it is defined by them. The actor taught us this: There is no frontier between being and appearing. ~ Albert Camus

  • 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

All systems of morality are based on the idea that an action has consequences that legitimize or cancel it. A mind imbued with the absurd merely judges that those consequences must be considered calmly. It is ready to pay up. In other words, there may be responsible persons, but there are no guilty ones, in its opinion. At very most, such a mind will consent to use past experience as a basis for its future actions. ~ Albert Camus

  • 4 Kalki 16:46, 6 November 2009 (UTC) * 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.

Nothing is harder to understand than a symbolic work. A symbol always transcends the one who makes use of it and makes him say in reality more than he is aware of expressing. ~ Albert Camus

  • 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

I don’t know whether this world has a meaning that transcends it. But I know that I cannot know that meaning and that it is impossible for me just now to know it. ~ Albert Camus

  • 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

A character is never the author who created him. It is quite likely, however, that an author may be all his characters simultaneously. ~ Albert Camus

  • 3 Kalki 15:55, 4 November 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

There are no easy choices. The way ahead will be very hard … But hard is not hopeless. ~ David Petraeus

  • 3 Kalki 15:41, 7 November 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.
