Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it. ~ Maya Angelou
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Reality is always greater — much greater — than what we know, than whatever we can say about it. ~ Michael Crichton (born 23 October 1942)
  • proposed by Kalki
2006
I am certain there is too much certainty in the world. ~ Michael Crichton
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
Life engenders life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich. ~ Sarah Bernhardt
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
We ought to hate very rarely, as it is too fatiguing; remain indifferent to a great deal, forgive often and never forget. ~ Sarah Bernhardt
  • proposed by Zarbon
2009 
Once the curtain is raised, the actor ceases to belong to himself. He belongs to his character, to his author, to his public. He must do the impossible to identify himself with the first, not to betray the second, and not to disappoint the third. And to this end the actor must forget his personality and throw aside his joys and sorrows. He must present the public with the reality of a being who for him is only a fiction. With his own eyes, he must shed the tears of the other. With his own voice, he must groan the anguish of the other. His own heart beats as if it would burst, for it is the other's heart that beats in his heart. And when he retires from a tragic or dramatic scene, if he has properly rendered his character, he must be panting and exhausted. ~ Sarah Bernhardt

Strictly speaking, no hypothesis or theory can ever be proven. When we say that we believe a theory, what we really mean is that we are unable to show that the theory is wrong — not that we are able to show, beyond doubt, that the theory is right. ~ Michael Crichton Gerhard Robbins

  • 1 Kalki 20:05, 18 October 2007 (UTC) 3 Kalki 23:36, 22 October 2005 (UTC) downgraded rank, as this is not actually Crichton's, and therefore not strongly linked to the date

  • The above quote is actually attributable to the physicist Gerhard Robbins. Michael Crichton does use it (in the appendix to his book Eaters of the Dead...but he has correctly acknowledged it) ~ SusanPitt (Talk)

Science is a kind of glorified tailoring enterprise, a method for taking measurements that describe something — reality — that may not be understood at all. ~ Michael Crichton (date of birth)

For beauty being the best of all we know
Sums up the unsearchable and secret aims
Of nature.

The world would not have had a Barack Obama or a Hillary Clinton if it had not been for my father's movement 40 years ago. To elect Senator Obama would be aproportion of that dream fulfilled. I believe we can do that if we elect the right leader. ~ Martin Luther King III

  • 1 Kalki 05:33, 18 October 2009 (UTC) 0 Kalki 20:17, 16 October 2008 (UTC) I might normally rank this 2 or 3, but it is far too explicitly partisan a statement to be a Wikiquote QOTD at this stage of a major US election.
