QOTD by month
This page contains links to pages for "Quotes of the Day" which were on the Main Page and associated images, displayed by month.
- For a period of several months there were also associated sound files made for many of them, but that experiment was abandoned.
- I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. ~ Martin Luther King
Initially QOTD selections would often remain unchanged for several days, but since 2 February 2004, they have always been changed on a daily basis. Since June 2005, QOTD proposals have been made at pages for each month which have sections for each date, and final selections usually reflect the result of rankings made there.
Any registered user is invited to make proposals, or to rank each candidate on these pages:
- January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December
Images began to be used in association with QOTDs on 27 January 2008:
- "In that direction," the Cat said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Hatter: and in that direction," waving the other paw, "lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
