Quotes of the day from previous years:
That man is an Euclidian point: position without substance. ~ Ernest Rutherford

Death closes all; but something ere the end,
Some work of noble note, may yet be done,
Not unbecoming men that strove with gods.

~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson ~ (died 6 October 1892)
Behold, we know not anything;
I can but trust that good shall fall
At last — far off — at last, to all,
And every winter change to spring.

So runs my dream; but what am I?
An infant crying in the night;
An infant crying for the light,
And with no language but a cry.

That Nature lends such evil dreams?
So careful of the type she seems,
So careless of the single life.

Tears from the depth of some divine despair
Rise in the heart, and gather to the eyes,
In looking on the happy Autumn-fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more.

The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.
