Quotes of the day from previous years:

2003
Really, I'm not out to destroy Microsoft. That will just be a completely unintentional side effect. ~ Linus Torvalds
  • selected by IP 68.227.198.159
2004
Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: If you're alive, it isn't. ~ Richard Bach
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Forgive us the breach of positive commands and negative commands, whether or not they involve an act, whether or not they are known to us. ~ Liturgy for Yom Kippur (begins the night of the 12th)
  • proposed by Kalki
2006
If you ever get trial by television or guilt by accusation, that day freedom dies because you have not had it done with all of the careful rules that have developed in a court of law. Press and television rely on freedom. Those who rely on freedom must uphold the rule of law and have a duty and a responsibility to do so and not try to substitute their own system for it. ~ Margaret Thatcher (born 13 October 1925).
  • proposed by David
2007
I'm always astounded at the way we automatically look at what divides and separates us. We never look at what people have in common. If you see it, black and white people, both sides look to see the differences, they don't look at what they have together. Men and women, and old and young, and so on. And this is a disease of the mind, the way I see it. ~ Doris Lessing (recent Nobel Prize winner for Literature)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
I think it's a disgrace for the international community that we have allowed so many conflicts to become frozen, and we are not making a serious effort to solve them. ~ Martti Ahtisaari (recent winner of the Nobel Peace prize of 2008)
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
The practical reason for freedom is that freedom seems to be the only condition under which any kind of substantial moral fiber can be developed — we have tried law, compulsion and authoritarianism of various kinds, and the result is nothing to be proud of. ~ Albert Jay Nock (born 13 October 1873)
  • proposed by Kalki

Quotes by people born this day, already used as QOTD:

  • Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence.

    ~ Paul Simon ~
  • And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said "The words of the prophets
    Are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sound of silence."

    ~ Paul Simon ~

Ranking system:

4 : Excellent - should definitely be used.

Defeat—I do not recognise the meaning of the word! ~ Margaret Thatcher

For every idealistic peacemaker willing to renounce his self-defence in favour of a weapons-free world, there is at least one warmaker anxious to exploit the other's good intentions. ~ Margaret Thatcher

  • 3 because this is true. For every truly honorable idealist, there's at least one who is willing to take advantage of those ideals for exploitation purposes. Zarbon 03:54, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

If the answer is infinite light, why do we sleep in the dark? ~ Paul Simon

Oh, I have roamed o'er many lands,

Get up in one of our industrial centres today and say that two and two make four, and if there is any financial interest concerned in maintaining that two and two make five, the police will bash your head in. ~ Albert Jay Nock

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

The State's criminality is nothing new and nothing to be wondered at. It began when the first predatory group of men clustered together and formed the State, and it will continue as long as the State exists in the world, because the State is fundamentally an anti-social institution, fundamentally criminal. The idea that the State originated to serve any kind of social purpose is completely unhistorical. It originated in conquest and confiscation — that is to say, in crime. It originated for the purpose of maintaining the division of society into an owning-and-exploiting class and a propertyless dependent class — that is, for a criminal purpose.
No State known to history originated in any other manner, or for any other purpose. ~ Albert Jay Nock

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

Here is the Golden Rule of sound citizenship, the first and greatest lesson in the study of politics: you get the same order of criminality from any State to which you give power to exercise it; and whatever power you give the State to do things for you carries with it the equivalent power to do things to you. ~ Albert Jay Nock

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.

The conservative is a person who considers very closely every chance, even the longest, of "throwing out the baby with the bath-water," as the German proverb puts it, and who determines his conduct accordingly. ~ Albert Jay Nock

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

In every civilization, however generally prosaic, however addicted to the short-time point of view on human affairs, there are always certain alien spirits who, while outwardly conforming to the requirements of the civilization around them, still keep a disinterested regard for the plain intelligible law of things, irrespective of any practical end. They have an intellectual curiosity, sometimes touched with emotion, concerning the august order of nature; they are impressed by the contemplation of it, and like to know as much about it as they can, even in circumstances where its operation is ever so manifestly unfavourable to their best hopes and wishes. ~ Albert Jay Nock

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

I write from instinct, from inexplicable sparkle. I don't know why I'm writing what I'm writing. Usually, I sit and I let my hands wander on my guitar. And I sing anything. I play anything. And I wait till I come across a pleasing accident. Then I start to develop it. Once you take a piece of musical information, there are certain implications that it automatically contains — the implication of that phrase elongated, contracted, or inverted or in another time signature. So you start with an impulse and go to what your ear likes. ~ Paul Simon

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Trust your intuition. It's just like goin' fishin'. You cast your line and hope you get a bite.
But you don't need to waste your time worrying about the marketplace, try to help the human race. Struggling to survive its harshest night.

~ Paul Simon ~

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Once upon a time there was an ocean.
But now it's a mountain range.
Something unstoppable put into motion.
Nothing is different, but everything's changed.

~ Paul Simon ~

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

"The universe loves a drama," you know. And ladies and gentlemen this is the show. ~ Paul Simon

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.

Prayers offered in times of peace are silent conversations. Appeals for love, or love's release. In private invocations. But all that is changed now. Gone like a memory from the day before the fires. People hungry for the voice of God hear lunatics and liars. Wartime prayers. Wartime prayers in every language spoken. For every family scattered and broken.
Because you cannot walk with the holy if you're just a halfway decent man. I don't pretend that I'm a mastermind with a genius marketing plan. I'm trying to tap into some wisdom. Even a little drop will do. I want to rid my heart of envy, and cleanse my soul of rage before I'm through. ~ Paul Simon

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.

Far above the golden clouds, the darkness vibrates.
The earth is blue.
And everything about it is a love song. Everything about it.

~ Paul Simon ~

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

I'm on my way, I don't know where I'm goin',
I'm on my way, I'm takin' my time, but I don't know where.

~ Paul Simon ~

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away

~ Paul Simon ~

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

When you're weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all
I'm on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

~ Paul Simon ~

  • 3 Kalki 01:12, 13 October 2009 (UTC) with a VERY strong lean toward 4.
