Max number[edit]

Max number for now is 12 entries. Add a new one to the top, remove the oldest one from the bottom. Best if we only add entries where everything is sourced. Cirt (talk) 22:22, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

OK. Best also if we have some balance in categories. Maybe to much scientist's quotes now. For example, if a scientist is added, a scientist should be removed. --Arjen Dijksman 16:02, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
Nah, it'll all work out. This project isn't too active that that is a problem, simply keep adding new texts to the top and things will balance out in the end. Cirt (talk) 16:08, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

13 entries has a better balance on the Main Page. Cirt (talk) 17:23, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

M. Scott Peck[edit]

The first line of Peck's book, "The Road Less Traveled" needs to be included here as well several others. The anniversary of his death is fast approaching.

"Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult - once we truly understand and accept it - then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters."

"So if your goal is to avoid pain and escape suffering, I would not advise you to seek higher levels of consciousness or spiritual evolution. First, you cannot achieve them without suffering, and second, insofar as you do achieve them, you are likely to be called on to serve in ways more painful to you, or at least demanding of you, than you can now imagine."

This would be more topical at Wikiquote:Requested entries than at this template, or you could boldly create the article yourself. ~ Ningauble 18:56, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
