Quotes of the day from previous years:
I am reminded of the professor who, in his declining hours, was asked by his devoted pupils for his final counsel. He replied, 'Verify your quotations.' ~ Winston Churchill
I'll tell you this — No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn. ~ Jim Morrison
The private detective of fiction is a fantastic creation who acts and speaks like a real man. He can be completely realistic in every sense but one, that one sense being that in life as we know it such a man would not be a private detective. ~ Raymond Chandler (born 23 July 1888)
Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. The detective must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor. He talks as the man of his age talks, that is, with rude wit, a lively sense of the grotesque, a disgust for sham, and a contempt for pettiness. ~ Raymond Chandler (born 23 July 1888)
Our system presumes that there are certain principles that are more important than the temper of the times. ~ Anthony Kennedy (born 23 July 1936)

I knew one thing: as soon as anyone said you didn't need a gun, you'd better take one along that worked. ~ Raymond Chandler (born 23 July 1888)

Chess is as elaborate a waste of human intelligence as you can find outside an advertising agency. ~ Raymond Chandler (born 23 July 1888)

The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is beside the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech. ~ Anthony Kennedy (born July 23, 1936)

We must never lose sight of the fact that the law has a moral foundation, and we must never fail to ask ourselves not only what the law is, but what the law should be. ~ Anthony Kennedy

The preservation of peace and the guaranteeing of man's basic freedoms and rights require courage and eternal vigilance: courage to speak and act — and if necessary, to suffer and die — for truth and justice; eternal vigilance, that the least transgression of international morality shall not go undetected and unremedied. These lessons must be learned anew by each succeeding generation, and that generation is fortunate indeed which learns from other than its own bitter experience. ~ Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia
