Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. ~ Margaret Mead
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Behold the believers of all beliefs! Whom do they hate most? Him who breaketh up their tables of values, the breaker, the law-breaker — he, however, is the creator. Companions, the creator seeketh, not corpses — and not herds or believers either. Fellow-creators the creator seeketh — those who grave new values on new tables. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche (born 15 October 1844)
  • proposed by Kalki
2006
In all life one should comfort the afflicted, but verily, also, one should afflict the comfortable, and especially when they are comfortably, contentedly, even happily wrong. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith (born 15 October 1908)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
Without art we would be nothing but foreground and live entirely in the spell of that perspective which makes what is closest at hand and most vulgar appear as if it were vast, and reality itself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2008
A nuclear war does not defend a country and it does not defend a system. I've put it the same way many times; not even the most accomplished ideologue will be able to tell the difference between the ashes of capitalism and the ashes of communism. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2009
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith
  • proposed by Kalki

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

  • Where the market works, I'm for that. Where the government is necessary, I'm for that. I'm deeply suspicious of somebody who says, "I'm in favor of privatization," or, "I'm deeply in favor of public ownership." I'm in favor of whatever works in the particular case. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith
  • One can promise actions, but not feelings, for the latter are involuntary. He who promises to love forever or hate forever or be forever faithful to someone is promising something that is not in his power. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche in Human, All Too Human
  • He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Ranking system:

4 : Excellent - should definitely be used.
3 : Very Good - strong desire to see it used.
2 : Good - some desire to see it used.
1 : Acceptable - but with no particular desire to see it used.
0 : Not acceptable - not appropriate for use as a quote of the day.

So long as thou feelest the stars as an "above thee," thou lackest the eye of the discerning one. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche (date of birth)

The secret for harvesting from existence the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment is — to live dangerously! ~ Friedrich Nietzsche (date of birth)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 17:14, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

  • 3 Kalki 22:28, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 04:49, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Money is a singular thing. It ranks with love as man's greatest source of joy. And with death as his greatest source of anxiety. Over all history it has oppressed nearly all people in one of two ways: either it has been abundant and very unreliable, or reliable and very scarce. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith (born 15 October 1908)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 17:14, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

  • 1 Zarbon 04:49, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

When people put their ballots in the boxes, they are, by that act, inoculated against the feeling that the government is not theirs. They then accept, in some measure, that its errors are their errors, its aberrations their aberrations, that any revolt will be against them. It's a remarkably shrewd and rather conservative arrangement when one thinks of it. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith

  • 3 Kalki 22:28, 13 October 2006 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
  • 1 Zarbon 04:49, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

All successful revolutions are the kicking in of a rotten door. The violence of revolutions is the violence of men who charge into a vacuum. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith (born 15 October 1908)

  • 3 Kalki 22:28, 13 October 2006 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 19:35, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 04:49, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

People are the common denominator of progress... no improvement is possible with unimproved people, and advance is certain when people are liberated and educated. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith (born 15 October 1908)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 20:03, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

The most defenseless tenderness and the bloodiest of powers have a similar need of confession. Western man has become a confessing animal. ~ Michel Foucault

  • 2 Kalki 14:42, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 20:03, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Confession frees, but power reduces one to silence; truth does not belong to the order of power, but shares an original affinity with freedom. ~ Michel Foucault

  • 3 Kalki 14:42, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 20:03, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them. ~ P. G. Wodehouse

  • 2 Zarbon 05:56, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 14:42, 14 October 2008 (UTC) with a lean toward 3.

Love has had a lot of press-agenting from the oldest times; but there are higher, nobler things than love. ~ P. G. Wodehouse

To say that his conscience was clear would be inaccurate, for he did not have a conscience, but he had what was much better, an alibi. ~ P. G. Wodehouse

  • 2 InvisibleSun 20:03, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

I wonder why some people tend to see science as something which takes man away from God. As I look at it, the path of science can always wind through the heart. For me, science has always been the path to spiritual enrichment and self-realisation. ~ Abdul Kalam

  • 2 Zarbon 05:56, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 14:42, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 20:03, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

The best way to win was to not need to win. The best performances are accomplished when you are relaxed and free of doubt. ~ Abdul Kalam

  • 2 InvisibleSun 20:03, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

This is my belief: that through difficulties and problems God gives us the opportunity to grow. So when your hopes and dreams and goals are dashed, search among the wreckage, you may find a golden opportunity hidden in the ruins. ~ Abdul Kalam

  • 3 Zarbon 05:56, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Love conquers all things; let us too surrender to love. ~ Virgil

Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears. ~ Italo Calvino (born October 15, 1923)

  • 3 Ningauble 00:55, 6 October 2008 (UTC) ~ I am also agreeable to the longer passage, if it is not too much. The short form is a little rarefied. ~ Ningauble 18:31, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 for the full version only: "With cities, it is as with dreams: everything imaginable can be dreamed, but even the most unexpected dream is a rebus that conceals a desire or, its reverse, a fear. Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else." - Zarbon 14:20, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 14:42, 14 October 2008 (UTC) for the expanded version.
  • 3 for the expanded version. - InvisibleSun 20:03, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith

  • 3 Kalki 00:29, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Wealth, in even the most improbable cases, manages to convey the aspect of intelligence. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith

  • 3 Kalki 00:29, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

When the modern corporation acquires power over markets, power in the community, power over the state and power over belief, it is a political instrument, different in degree but not in kind from the state itself. To hold otherwise — to deny the political character of the modern corporation — is not merely to avoid the reality. It is to disguise the reality. The victims of that disguise are the students who instruct in error. Let there be no question: economics, so long as it is thus taught, becomes, however unconsciously, a part of the arrangement by which the citizen or student is kept from seeing how he or she is, or will be, governed. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith

  • 3 Kalki 00:29, 15 October 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.

Few can believe that suffering, especially by others, is in vain. Anything that is disagreeable must surely have beneficial economic effects. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith

  • 3 Kalki 00:29, 15 October 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

In any great organization it is far, far safer to be wrong with the majority than to be right alone. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith

  • 3 Kalki 00:29, 15 October 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

Politics is not the art of the possible. It consists in choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith

  • 3 Kalki 00:29, 15 October 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

The enemy of the conventional wisdom is not ideas but the march of events. ~ John Kenneth Galbraith

  • 3 Kalki 00:29, 15 October 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.
