Quote of the day is a section on the Main Page where a notable quotation is displayed. See Guidelines for an explanation of the selection process.

Current version of this section on the Main Page:

Apply just the right amount of force — never too much, never too little. All of us know of people who have failed to accomplish what they set out to do because of not properly gauging the amount of effort required. At one extreme, they fall short of the mark; at the other, they do not know when to stop.

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
