Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before. ~ Mae West
  • selected by Kalki
2005
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone. ~ Rod Serling in The Twilight Zone
  • proposed by Kalki The first episode of The Twilight Zone, "Where is Everybody?" aired on 2 October 1959.
2006
Before you do anything, think. If you do something to try and impress someone, to be loved, accepted or even to get someone's attention, stop and think. So many people are busy trying to create an image, they die in the process. ~ Salma Hayek
2007
If there must be a god in the house, must be,
Saying things in the room and on the stair,

Let him move as the sunlight moves on the floor,
Or moonlight, silently, as Plato's ghost

Or Aristotle's skeleton. Let him hang out
His stars on the wall. He must dwell quietly.

~ Wallace Stevens ~

  • proposed by InvisibleSun
2008
I am one of you and being one of you
Is being and knowing what I am and know.
Yet I am the necessary angel of earth,
Since, in my sight, you see the earth again,
Cleared of its stiff and stubborn, man-locked set
And, in my hearing, you hear its tragic drone
Rise liquidly in liquid lingerings,
Like watery words awash; like meanings said
By repetitions of half-meanings.

~ Wallace Stevens ~

  • proposed by Kalki
2009
There is but one means to extenuate the effects of enemy fire: it is to develop a more violent fire oneself. ~ Ferdinand Foch
  • proposed by Zarbon

  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:43, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Style is not something applied. It is something that permeates. It is of the nature of that in which it is found, whether the poem, the manner of a god, the bearing of a man. It is not a dress. ~ Wallace Stevens

The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire. ~ Ferdinand Foch (born October 2)

  • 3 because this is a very nice piece of imagery. An angered soul burns very well and does not cease to burn its surroundings. And an angered warrior will do heavy damage. Beautifully charming. Zarbon 17:39, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 00:35, 1 October 2008 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:43, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

None but a coward dares to boast that he has never known fear. ~ Ferdinand Foch (born October 2)

  • 3 Kalki 00:35, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:43, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

You can’t conceive, nor can I, the appalling strangeness of the mercy of God. ~ Graham Greene

  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:43, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

A petty reason perhaps why novelists more and more try to keep a distance from journalists is that novelists are trying to write the truth and journalists are trying to write fiction. ~ Graham Greene

  • 3 Kalki 01:44, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 Zarbon 13:05, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Catholics and communists have committed great crimes, but at least they have not stood aside, like an established society, and been indifferent. I would rather have blood on my hands than water like Pilate...if you have abandoned one faith, do not abandon all faith. There is always an alternative to the faith we lose. Or is it the same faith under another mask? ~ Graham Greene

  • 2 Zarbon 13:05, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

We mustn't complain too much of being comedians — it's an honourable profession. If only we could be good ones the world might gain at least a sense of style. We have failed — that's all. We are bad comedians, we aren't bad men. ~ Graham Greene

  • 3 Kalki 01:44, 1 October 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.
  • 2 Zarbon 13:05, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

There is a point of no return, unremarked at the time, in most lives. ~ Graham Greene

  • 3 Kalki 01:44, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
  • 2 Zarbon 13:05, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Sooner or later...one has to take sides – if one is to remain human. ~ Graham Greene

The imagination is one of the forces of nature. ~ Wallace Stevens

  • 3 Kalki 02:12, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 13:05, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

The truth seems to be that we live in concepts of the imagination before the reason has established them. If this is true, then reason is simply the methodizer of the imagination. ~ Wallace Stevens

  • 3 Kalki 02:12, 1 October 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
  • 2 Zarbon 13:05, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

I like my philosophy smothered in beauty and not the opposite. ~ Wallace Stevens

Religions are different roads converging to the same point. What does it matter that we take different road, so long as we reach the same goal. Wherein is the cause for quarrelling? ~ Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

  • 3 Kalki 23:17, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self sustained. ~ Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

  • 3 Kalki 23:17, 2 October 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.

The ideally non-violent state will be an ordered anarchy. That State is the best governed which is governed the least. ~ Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
