Quotes of the day from previous years:
2004
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant. ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
2005
I don't want to have lived in vain like most people. I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death! And that's why I'm grateful to God for having given me this gift, which I can use to develop and to express all that's inside me! ~ Anne Frank (born 12 June 1929)
2006
If one is but secure at the foundation, he will not be pained by departure from minor details or affairs that are contrary to expectation. But in the end, the details of a matter are important. The right and wrong of one's way of doing things are found in trivial matters. ~ Yamamoto Tsunetomo (born 12 June 1659)
2007
I don't believe that the big men, the politicians and the capitalists alone are guilty of the war. Oh, no, the little man is just as keen, otherwise the people of the world would have risen in revolt long ago! There is an urge and rage in people to destroy, to kill, to murder, and until all mankind, without exception, undergoes a great change, wars will be waged, everything that has been built up, cultivated and grown, will be destroyed and disfigured, after which mankind will have to begin all over again. ~ Anne Frank
2008
We are adhering to life now with our last muscle — the heart. ~ Djuna Barnes

My knowledge of pain, learned with the sabre, taught me not to be afraid. And just as in dueling when you must concentrate on your enemy's cheek, so, too, in war. You cannot waste time on feinting and sidestepping. You must decide on your target and go in. ~ Otto Skorzeny (born June 12)

  • 4 because eradicating fear is worthwhile, and the comparison between sabre dueling and timing is brilliant. I would have gave this a 4, but I am limiting that rating to my three favorite quotes of all time (September 22, October 4, and November 30) Zarbon 04:52, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

To show people the real you. ~ Justin Heazlewood
