Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live. ~ Dorothy Thompson
2005
The world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those who feel. ~ Horace Walpole
• proposed by Kalki
2006
Poems present their testimony as circumstantial evidences, not as closing argument. Where Wallace Stevens says, “God and the imagination are one,” I would say that the imagination, which synergizes intellect, emotion and instinct, is the perceptive organ through which it is possible, though not inevitable, to experience God. ~ Denise Levertov (born 24 October 1923)
• proposed by Fys
2007
Two girls discover
the secret of life
in a sudden line of
poetry.

I who don't know the
secret wrote
the line. ...

I love them
for finding what
I can't find,

and for loving me
for the line I wrote,
and for forgetting it
so that

a thousand times, till death
finds them, they may
discover it again, in other
lines

in other
happenings.

• proposed by Kalki
2008
We present a dramatically different approach to time management. This is a principle-centered approach. It transcends the traditional prescriptions of faster, harder, smarter, and more. Rather than offering you another clock, this approach provides you with a compass — because more important than how fast you're going, is where you're headed. ~ Stephen Covey

## Suggestions

The poet
never must lose despair. ~ Denise Levertov, born 24 October 1923

• 3. Fys. “Ta fys aym”. 00:04, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
• 3 InvisibleSun 00:36, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
• 3 for a poet works best under conditions of despair. Brilliant. Zarbon 05:34, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
• 1 Kalki 20:14, 23 October 2008 (UTC) 2 Kalki 20:42, 16 October 2008 (UTC) I like the phrase in context, but standing alone, apart from other portions of the poem much of the meaning and significance is lost, and Levertov seems to actually be quoting someone else, another poet or a translator in that portion of the poem. I would rank it a 3 or 4 if quoted more fully:
the poet, his presence
ursine and kind, shifting his weight in a chair too small
for him,
quietly says, and shyly: "The Poet
never must lose despair."
Then our eyes indeed
meet and hold.
All of us know, smiling
in common knowledge —
even the palest spirit among us, burdened
as he is with weight of abstractions —
all of us know he means
we mustn't, any of us, lose touch with the source,
pretend it's not there, cover over
the mineshaft of passion...
there is even more context if it continued, but this at least would suffice to add words of Levertov to the statement, and indicate something of its context. ~ Kalki 06:04, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Praise
the invisible sun burning beyond
the white cold sky, giving us

~ Denise Levertov ~

• 3 Kalki 20:28, 18 October 2007 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.
• 3 InvisibleSun 19:33, 23 October 2007 (UTC)
• 2 and InvisibleSun's username is in it! This is the second quote we've come across with his username in it. The sun's invisibility is a perfect camouflage to the untrained eye, hindered by the rays of light which tear the skies asunder! Zarbon 05:34, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

It was no longer sounds only that made the music:
he spoke, and as no tree listens I listened, and language
came into my roots
out of the earth,
into my bark
out of the air,
into the pores of my greenest shoots
gently as dew
and there was no word he sang but I knew its meaning.

~ Denise Levertov ~

I was run over by the truth one day.
Ever since the accident I've walked this way ~ Adrian Mitchell

• 2 Kalki 20:31, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
• 2 InvisibleSun 21:22, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Alas, this industrialized twelve-tone horse, dull on the outside and empty inside, constantly being perfected and dragged to a new Troy in shadow of an ideological war long since fought and won by responsible minds like Schoenberg, with neither systems nor scholarship for armor! ~ Luciano Berio

• 3 Zarbon 04:02, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
• 1 Kalki 20:31, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
• 1 InvisibleSun 21:22, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

$\textstyle\frac{3}{4}$ of world problems and bewilderment would be lost if we understood our opponents. ~ Stephen Covey

• 3 Zarbon 04:02, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
• 2 Kalki 20:31, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
• 3 InvisibleSun 21:22, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

The moment of making choice is the moment of truth! ~ Stephen Covey

• 4 Kalki 23:47, 23 October 2009 (UTC) * 3 Kalki 20:42, 16 October 2008 (UTC) but have found this to be a paraphrase, and am correcting and extending it to read:
A moment of choice is a moment of truth. It's the testing point of our character and competence.
• 2 Zarbon 22:38, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
• 3 InvisibleSun 21:22, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

• Most people ignore most poetry because most poetry ignores most people. ~ Adrian Mitchell
• 3 Kalki 06:04, 18 October 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

Trust is the glue that holds everything together. It creates the environment in which all of the other elements — win-win stewardship agreements, self-directing individuals and teams, aligned structures and systems, and accounatability — can flourish. ~ Stephen Covey

• 3 Kalki 06:04, 18 October 2009 (UTC) with a strong lean toward 4.

Courage is not the absence of fear but the awareness that something else is more important. ~ Stephen Covey

• 3 Kalki 06:04, 18 October 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.
