Quotes of the day from previous years:

They serve so that we don't have to. They offer to give up their lives so that we can be free. It is, remarkably, their gift to us. And all they ask for in return is that we never send them into harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary. Will they ever trust us again? ~ Michael Moore
2005

2008

I observed, "Love is the fulfilling of the law, the end of the commandment." It is not only "the first and great" command, but all the commandments in one.

~ John Wesley ~

All I really want is to provide a hard-working man in the blouse business with a method of expressing himself; if he likes a tune, he can whistle it, and it will make his life happier. ~ Richard Rodgers, born on June 28th

We don't have a Rodgers page yet (hardly surprising); this quotation is the only Rodgers in my Simpson's (number 9614).

~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau ~

Whenever the last trumpet shall sound, I will present myself before the sovereign judge with this book in my hand, and loudly proclaim, thus have I acted; these were my thoughts; such was I. With equal freedom and veracity have I related what was laudable or wicked, I have concealed no crimes, added no virtues; and if I have sometimes introduced superfluous ornament, it was merely to occupy a void occasioned by defect of memory: I may have supposed that certain, which I only knew to be probable, but have never asserted as truth, a conscious falsehood.
~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau ~
