If you want to revive discussion regarding the subject, you should ask for broader input, for instance at the Village pump.

This page remains as an archive of ideas, but is largely obsolete as a place to make proposals, as since June 2005 we have been developing policies where users can propose and rank proposals for the Quote of the Day for specified dates in each month. ~ Kalki


This page was a place where anyone could post proposals for future Quotes of the day that were not found among those in the Quote of the Day archives of 2005, 2004, or 2003. These are arranged alphabetically by first word for easier searches.

  • The body is but a vessel for the soul, a puppet which bends to the soul's tyranny. And lo, the body is not eternal, for it must feed on the flesh of others, lest it return to the dust from whence it came. Therefore must the soul deceive, despise and murder men. ~ A. J Durai in Vagrant Story

  • There are no strengths and weaknesses, but only qualities which prove to be strengths when profitably adapted to the situation and weakness if otherwise ~ Rajeev Kasat
  • This love, earthly love, is a truce between metamorphs, a temporary agreement not to shape-shift while kissing or holding hands. Love is a beach towel spread over shifting sands. Love is intimate democracy, a compact that insists on renewals, and you can be voted out overnight, however big your majority. It’s fragile, precarious, and it’s all we can get without selling our souls to one party or the other. It’s what we have while remaining free... All treaties can be broken, all promises end up as lies. Sign nothing, make no promises. Make a provisional reconciliation, a fragile peace. If you’re lucky it might last five days; or fifty years. ~ Salman Rushdie, The Ground Beneath Her Feet

  • The mannerly principle of not deliberately provoking others, which is the foundation of civilized living, supplies a sense of etiquette about what is permissible where.

The vulgar have their venues, and should not expect to be allowed to set the tone everywhere. ~ Miss Manners (AKA Judith Martin)

  • The Qur'an cannot be translated. ... The book is here rendered almost literally and every effort has been made to choose befitting language. But the result is not the Glorious Qur'an, that inimitable symphony, the very sounds of which move men to tears and ecstasy. It is only an attempt to present the meaning of the Qur'an—and peradventure something of the charm in English. It can never take the place of the Qur'an in Arabic, nor is it meant to do so... ~ Marmaduke Pickthall, 1930
  • … there is an appreciable difference between doing dirty work and merely profiting by it. Most people approve of capital punishment, but most people wouldn't do the hangman's job. ~ George Orwell, The Road to Wigan Pier
  • The ship of state, Bernard, is the only ship that leaks from the top. ~ Sir Humphrey Yes, Minister
  • The sound of a person's voice and speech is heard as a simple sound, yet the angels on hearing it perceive in it all the feelings that make up the person's love; they also know which feelings these are, and what their quality is. The fact that these things lie hidden within the sound we can even to some extent grasp from the sound of someone talking—for instance, whether it has in it a ring of contempt, or mockery, or hatred; or whether it has a ring of kindness, good will, cheerfulness, or other feelings. ~ True Christian Religion 365 ~ Emanuel Swedenborg

  • "There is no one who does not carry scars on their heart. If there were someone in the world like that, he would be a shallow soul" ~ Hiei, from Yu Yu Hakusho: The Movie
  • There's very little advice in men's magazines, because men don't think there's a lot they don't know. Women do. Women want to learn. Men think, 'I know what I'm doing, just show me somebody naked. ~ Jerry Seinfeld
  • There is not one among us in whom a devil does not dwell; at sometime, on some point, that devil masters each of us; he who has never failed has never been tempted; but the man who does in the end conquer, who does painfully retrace the steps of his slipping, why he shows that he has been tried in the fire and not found wanting. It is not having been in the Dark House, but having left it, that counts. ~ Theodore Roosevelt
  • There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. ~ Jesus Christ

If you are to come up with a new idea, you cannot even use the "box" as a point of reference, so what box are you talking about? - Mark Sanger
  • Those who have been too long at their labor, who have drunk too long at the cup of voluptuousness, who feel they have become temporarily inhumane, who are tormented by their families, who find life sad and love ephemeral; they should all eat chocolate and they will be comforted. ~ Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
  • Thought from the eye closes the understanding, but thought from the understanding opens the eye. ~ Divine Love and Wisdom 46 ~ Emanuel Swedenborg
  • Three men may keep a secret---provided two of them are dead. ~ Benjamin Franklin
  • Through violence you may murder a liar, but you can't establish truth. Through violence you may murder a hater, but you can't murder hate. Darkness cannot put out darkness. Only light can do that. Difficult and painful as it is, we must walk on in the days ahead with an audacious faith in the future. When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds of despair, and when our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, let us remember that there is a creative force in this universe, working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • To save the world requires faith and courage: faith in reason, and courage to proclaim what reason shows to be true. ~ Bertrand Russell
  • To the extent that we detest evil, goodness enters from heaven.
    To the extent that we detest promiscuity, what is chaste enters.
    To the extent that we detest fraud and unlawful gains, sincerity and justice enter.
    To the extent that we detest hatred and revenge, loving kindness enters.
    To the extent that we detest lies and blasphemies, truth enters.
    And to the extent that we detest arrogance, humility before God and love of others enter. ~ Apocalypse Explained 803 ~ Emanuel Swedenborg
  • Tragedy blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything, creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle, and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it's still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild. ~ Veronica, Veronica Mars, Season 1, Episode 3 (Meet John Smith)
  • Truth does not shine from itself, because there is nothing flaming in it alone. But truth shines from goodness, for goodness is like a flame, which gives light. ~ Arcana Coelestia 4742 ~ Emanuel Swedenborg
  • Trust is the most fragile commodity, once broken it can 'never' be held again even when one desires it the most in others. ~ Thomas Mushet
  • The arrogance of consciousness which for example rejects dreams so lightly, belongs quite generally, to the strongest protective apparatus which guards us against the breaking through of the unconscious complexes, and as a result it is hard to convince people of the reality of the unconscious, and to teach them anew what their conscious knowledge contradicts. Sigmund Freud

  • The room contains a few dozen living human bodies, each one a big sack of guts and fluids so highly compressed that it will squirt for a few yards when pierced. Each one is built around an armature of 206 bones connected to each other by notoriously fault-prone joints that are given to obnoxious creaking, grinding, and popping noises when they are in other than pristine condition. This structure is draped with throbbing steak, inflated with clenching air sacks, and pierced by a Gordian sewer filled with burbling acid and compressed gas and asquirt with vile enzymes and solvents produced by the many dark, gamy nuggets of genetically programmed meat strung along its length. Slugs of dissolving food are forced down this sloppy labyrinth by serialized convulsions, decaying into gas, liquid, and solid matter which must all be regularly vented to the outside world lest the owner go toxic and drop dead. Spherical, gel-packed cameras swivel in mucus-greased ball joints. Infinite phalanxes of cilia beat back invading particles, en**capsulate them in goo for later disposal. In each body a centrally located muscle flails away at an eternal, circulating torrent of pressurized gravy. And yet, despite all of this, not one of these bodies makes a single sound at any time during the ….speech. It is a marvel that can only be explained by the power of brain over body, and, in turn, by the power of cultural conditioning over the brain. CRYPTONOMICON, Neal Stephenson
  • There are those moments, moments that aren't visible to other people, when a person whom you at all times admire suddenly seems ten times more beautiful than they were before." ~The Complete Ivory~ Doris Egan

  • We (The USA) have about 50% of the world's wealth but only 6.3% of its population. This disparity is particularly great as between ourselves and the peoples of Asia. In this situation, we cannot fail to be the object of envy and resentment. Our real task in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity without positive detriment to our national security. To do so, we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and day-dreaming; and our attention will have to be concentrated everywhere on our immediate national objectives. We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford today the luxury of altruism and world-benefaction. - George Keenan
