Quotes of the day from previous years:

2005
Now you see, Lone Starr, that evil will always triumph, because good is dumb. ~ Rick Moranis as "Dark Helmet" in Spaceballs by Mel Brooks (born 28 June 1926)
2006
Hatred, as well as love, renders its votaries credulous. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau (born 28 June 1712)

2008
Man is born free; and everywhere he is in chains. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
2009
