Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives. ~ Leo Tolstoy
  • selected by Kalki
2005
I think for it to be unhip to be idealistic is weird, you know? I mean, even all the best rebels to me had some sense of hope in them. ~ Tom Petty (born 20 October 1950)
  • proposed by Kalki

But all thinking is research, and all research is native, original, with him who carries it on, even if everybody else in the world already is sure of what he is still looking for. ~ John Dewey (born 20 October 1859)

2007
I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings
Coming down is the hardest thing.

~ Tom Petty ~

2008
We're overdue for a dream come true.
Long time nothing new.
We're overdue for a dream come true.

We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster. ~ The Six Million Dollar Man (premiered that day)

I have seen starry archipelagoes! and islands,
Whose raving skies are opened to the voyager:
Is it in these bottomless nights that you sleep, in exile,
A million golden birds, O future Vigor?
~ Arthur Rimbaud (born October 20, 1854)

Knowledge is humanistic in quality not because it is about human products in the past, but because of what it does in liberating human intelligence and human sympathy. Any subject matter which accomplishes this result is humane, and any subject matter which does not accomplish it is not even educational. ~ John Dewey

People are broad-minded. They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater and even a newspaperman, but if a man doesn't drive, there's something wrong with him. ~ Art Buchwald
