Quotes of the day from previous years:

2003
Sex is only dirty if it's done right. ~ Woody Allen
  • selected by IP 195.100.67.10
2004
Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try. ~ "Yoda" in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Live as one of them, Kal-El, to discover where your strength and your power are needed. Always hold in your heart the pride of your special heritage. They can be a great people, Kal-El — they wish to be. They only lack the light to show the way. ~ Marlon Brando as "Jor-El" in Superman: The Movie
  • proposed by Kalki; Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel (born 17 October 1914)
2006
Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets. ~ Arthur Miller (born 17 October 1915)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
My conception of the audience is of a public each member of which is carrying about with him what he thinks is an anxiety, or a hope, or a preoccupation which is his alone and isolates him from mankind; and in this respect at least the function of a play is to reveal him to himself so that he may touch others by virtue of the revelation of his mutuality with them. If only for this reason I regard the theater as a serious business, one that makes or should make man more human, which is to say, less alone. ~ Arthur Miller
  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2008
There's too much of an attempt, it seems to me, to think in terms of controlling man, rather than freeing him. Of defining him rather than letting him go. It's part of the whole ideology of this age, which is power-mad. ~ Arthur Miller
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
An era can be said to end when its basic illusions are exhausted. ~ Arthur Miller
  • proposed by Kalki

You specialize in something until one day you find it is specializing in you. ~ Arthur Miller

  • Comment: What is the benefit to add quotes you cannot highly estimate? Just curious. --Aphaia 00:28, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
    • Response: 2 to me is a high rating. 3 means that the quote is in itself exceptional amongst the rest for the day. And 4 to me is such a rare rating that I limited it to such a few quotes during the entire year in the hopes that they make it. - Zarbon 22:23, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Could anyone in his right mind speak seriously of any limited nuclear war? It should be quite clear that the aggressor's actions will instantly and inevitably trigger a devastating counterstroke by the other side. None but completely irresponsible people could maintain that a nuclear war may be made to follow rules adopted beforehand, with nuclear missiles exploding in a "gentlemanly manner" over strictly designated targets and sparing the population. ~ Dmitriy Ustinov

By whatever means it is accomplished, the prime business of a play is to arouse the passions of its audience so that by the route of passion may be opened up new relationships between a man and men, and between men and Man. Drama is akin to the other inventions of man in that it ought to help us to know more, and not merely to spend our feelings. ~ Arthur Miller

The job is to ask questions — it always was — and to ask them as inexorably as I can. And to face the absence of precise answers with a certain humility. ~ Arthur Miller

  • 3 Kalki 18:27, 16 October 2008 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 21:58, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

The Wheel wheels as the Wheel wills. ~ Robert Jordan

  • 2 InvisibleSun 21:58, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
