Quotes of the day from previous years:

2003
Never burn a penny candle looking for a halfpenny. ~ Irish proverb
  • selected by Nanobug
2004
Only tragedy allows the release of love and grief never normally seen. ~ Kate Bush
  • selected by Kalki
2005
September 11 was, and remains, above all an immense human tragedy. But September 11 also posed a momentous and deliberate challenge not just to America but to the world at large. The target of the terrorists was not only New York and Washington but the very values of freedom, tolerance and decency which underpin our way of life. ~ Tony Blair
  • proposed by Kalki
2006
On September 11 — what happened? Picture this: two upended matchboxes, knocked over by the sheer force of paper-darts.
Only it was much, much worse than that. In fact, words alone cannot adduce how much worse it was than that. September 11 was an attack on words: we felt a general deficit. ~ Martin Amis
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
Our best destiny, as planetary cohabitants, is the development of what has been called "species consciousness" — something over and above nationalisms, blocs, religions, ethnicities ... I have been trying to apply such a consciousness, and such a sensibility. Thinking of the victims, the perpetrators, and the near future, I felt species grief, then species shame, then species fear. ~ Martin Amis on the terrorist attacks of 11th September 2001
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
Although September 11 was horrible, it didn't threaten the survival of the human race, like nuclear weapons do. ... I don't think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread into space. There are too many accidents that can befall life on a single planet. But I'm an optimist. We will reach out to the stars. ~ Stephen Hawking
  • proposed by MosheZadka
2009
On September 11, 2001, the world fractured. It's beyond my skill as a writer to capture that day, and the days that would follow — the planes, like specters, vanishing into steel and glass; the slow-motion cascade of the towers crumbling into themselves; the ash-covered figures wandering the streets; the anguish and the fear. Nor do I pretend to understand the stark nihilism that drove the terrorists that day and that drives their brethren still. My powers of empathy, my ability to reach into another's heart, cannot penetrate the blank stares of those who would murder innocents with abstract, serene satisfaction. ~ Barack Obama
  • proposed by Zarbon
2010

Suggestions

This enemy attacked not just our people, but all freedom-loving people everywhere in the world. The United States of America will use all our resources to conquer this enemy. We will rally the world. We will be patient, we will be focused, and we will be steadfast in our determination.... we will not allow this enemy to win the war by changing our way of life or restricting our freedoms. ~ George W. Bush

  • 2 3~ Kalki 21:08, 9 September 2005 (UTC) there remains a mixture of validity and irony in this statement, but I am less inclined than previously to use it, because the ironies clearly have become stronger. ~ Kalki 15:16, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

We have been the cowards lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it's not cowardly. Stupid maybe, but not cowardly. - Bill Maher on calling the terrorists cowards.

The magnificent here and now of life in the flesh is ours, and ours alone, and ours only for a time. We ought to dance with rapture that we should be alive and in the flesh, and part of the living, incarnate cosmos. I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea. My soul knows that I am part of the human race, my soul is an organic part of the great human soul, as my spirit is part of my nation. In my own very self, I am part of my family. There is nothing of me that is alone and absolute except my mind, and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself, it is only the glitter of the sun on the surface of the waters. ~ D. H. Lawrence (born 11 September 1885, and a somewhat relevant statement in regard to 11 September 2001)

Not very long ago some one invented the assertion that there were only "Four Hundred" people in New York City who were really worth noticing. But a wiser man has arisen — the census taker — and his larger estimate of human interest has been preferred in marking out the field of these little stories of the "Four Million. ~ O. Henry (born 11 September 1862, and a somewhat relevant statement in regard to 11 September 2001)

I was reminded as I was reviewing my life, that I have been in too many conflicts, too many wars, political battles, military battles, civil strifes in government. And always one lesson stands out and that is, those whom you fight most passionately often turn out to be your best friends. ~ Ferdinand Marcos (born September 11)

We cannot and we will not negotiate with terrorists. We have nothing but contempt for them. To conciliate differences with these people without them changing their objectives is to condemn our Republic to ultimate strangulation and death. ~ Ferdinand Marcos (born September 11)

Terrorism has no motherland and terrorists have no nationality. ~ Karen Demirchyan

  • 4 because a terrorist has no loyalty to any land and absolutely no loyalty to any people. Zarbon 04:08, 27 April 2008 (UTC)
    • SOURCE: BBC Archive - NewsBank - Oct 20, 1999
  • 1 because when I read the quote I get the sense that it can too easily be taken multiple ways. It can be saying that terrorists are people who fight only for themselves and their own greed, which I think is the speaker being a bit presumptuous or it can mean that terrorists are not all fighting for one country or one cause insinuating that fighting one country or cause won't get rid of them. --JayStander 07:54, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
    • Well, that's not what he's saying at all. Just to clear it up, the quotation is referring to how the act of terrorism belongs to no race and it automatically expels one from any living norms. Basically, it goes against terrorism in that it degrades the very being of a terrorist, to specify them by their actions and not their nationality, and insofar, degrade them heavily. It is definitely anti-terrorism. Zarbon 04:17, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 22:01, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

We don't know when this madness will end but I do know that god is speaking. I have to believe that in my heart, and I have to know that god will use even this tragedy, to shake up the world. ~ Unknown, (quoted from a video on 9/11)

The attacks of September 11 were intended to break our spirit, instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than every to live our lives in freedom. ~ Rudy Giuliani

We have entered the third millennium through a gate of fire. If today, after the horror of 11 September, we see better, and we see further — we will realize that humanity is indivisible. New threats make no distinction between races, nations or regions. A new insecurity has entered every mind, regardless of wealth or status. A deeper awareness of the bonds that bind us all — in pain as in prosperity — has gripped young and old.
In the early beginnings of the 21st century — a century already violently disabused of any hopes that progress towards global peace and prosperity is inevitable — this new reality can no longer be ignored. It must be confronted. ~ Kofi Annan

I'm not afraid of loving my enemies
Turning the other cheek
Blessing those that would curse me
I honestly want peace with you
But when you come against my country
When you come against my family
You try to destroy my people
I can't just stand by
There's no way that I can stand by
This time, I will not stand by
I am coming, and if I come, then pain is coming with me
I'm coming, and pain will be with me
~ Kevin Young, frontman of the band Disciple

September 11 is the 254th day of the year (255th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 111 days remaining until the end of the year.

It is usually the first day of the Coptic calendar and Ethiopian calendar (in the period AD 1900 to AD 2099).

The terms September 11th, 11th September, and 9/11 (pronounced "Nine-eleven") have been widely used in the Western media as a shorthand for the September 11 on the World Trade Center and The Pentagon in the United States of America.

In other places of the world the media also use it as shorthand for other events, for example, the September 11, 1973 Coup d'État in Chile is referred to as "El 11 de Septiembre" or "El once" ("September 11" or "The eleventh" in Spanish) as shorthand for the Coup events; September 11 is also Enkutatash or New Year's Day in the Ethiopian calendar.
