Quotes of the day from previous years:

2003
That man is an Euclidian point: position without substance. ~ Ernest Rutherford
  • selected by Nanobug
2004
I don't get no respect! ~ Rodney Dangerfield (recent death)
  • selected by Kalki
2005
Old age hath yet his honor and his toil.
Death closes all; but something ere the end,
Some work of noble note, may yet be done,
Not unbecoming men that strove with gods.

~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson ~ (died 6 October 1892)
  • proposed by Kalki
2006
Behold, we know not anything;
I can but trust that good shall fall
At last — far off — at last, to all,
And every winter change to spring.

So runs my dream; but what am I?
An infant crying in the night;
An infant crying for the light,
And with no language but a cry.

~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson ~

  • proposed by Kalki
2007
Are God and Nature then at strife,
That Nature lends such evil dreams?
So careful of the type she seems,
So careless of the single life.

~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson ~ (died 6 October 1892)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
It is said that power corrupts, but actually it's more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power. ~ David Brin
  • proposed by Zarbon
2009
Every marvel of our age arose out of the critical give and take of an open society. No other civilization ever managed to incorporate this crucial innovation, weaving it into daily life. And if you disagree with this ... say so! ~ David Brin
  • proposed by Kalki
2010

Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep. ~ Le Corbusier (born 6 October 1887)

Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean,
Tears from the depth of some divine despair
Rise in the heart, and gather to the eyes,
In looking on the happy Autumn-fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more.

~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson ~ (died 6 October 1892)

  • 1 Zarbon 04:03, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.

~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson ~ (died 6 October 1892)

  • 3 Kalki 09:19, 5 October 2006 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 13:47, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 04:03, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

The worst mistake of first contact, made throughout history by individuals on both sides of every new encounter, has been the unfortunate habit of making assumptions. It often proved fatal. ~ David Brin

  • 2 Zarbon 04:44, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 19:20, 2 October 2008 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.
  • 3 InvisibleSun 23:50, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

One should never make an offer without knowing full well what will happen if it is accepted. ~ David Brin

  • 3 Zarbon 04:44, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Kalki 17:45, 5 October 2009 (UTC) * 2 Kalki 19:20, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Change is the principal feature of our age and literature should explore how people deal with it. The best science fiction does that, head-on. ~ David Brin

  • 3 Kalki 17:44, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Learn to control ego. Humans hold their dogmas and biases too tightly, and we only think that our opponents are dogmatic! But we all need criticism. Criticism is the only known antidote to error. ~ David Brin

  • 3 Kalki 17:44, 5 October 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

Modern life demands, and is waiting for, a new kind of plan, both for the house and the city. ~ Le Corbusier

  • 3 Kalki 17:44, 5 October 2009 (UTC) with a lean toward 4.

Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light. Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage; the image of these is distinct and tangible within us without ambiguity. It is for this reason that these are beautiful forms, the most beautiful forms. Everybody is agreed to that, the child, the savage and the metaphysician. ~ Le Corbusier

  • 3 Kalki 17:44, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

It is a question of building which is at the root of the social unrest of today: architecture or revolution. ~ Le Corbusier
