LysanderSpooner.jpg  
A man is none the less a slave because he is allowed to choose a new master once in a term of years. Neither are a people any the less slaves because permitted periodically to choose new masters. What makes them slaves is the fact that they now are, and are always hereafter to be, in the hands of men whose power over them is, and always is to be, absolute and irresponsible.
~ Lysander Spooner ~

GuidelinesEdit

The process of choosing which quotations are displayed on specific days is currently handled by Kalki, the director of this set of pages. If you have any suggestions, requests, questions, or complaints, then please post them on the discussion page. Since June 2005, "Quote of the day" proposals have been made at pages for each month which have sections for each date, and final selections usually reflect the result of rankings made there.

Any registered user is invited to make proposals, or to rank each candidate on these pages:

January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December

You might also check Quote of the Day (complete list) to see if your suggestion has already been featured in the past.
