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)

Per above, prior version had better balance as it had originally started, with twelve (12) entries. Balance for Main Page appears to be best with this original number. -- Cirt (talk) 00:34, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
There have been 14 articles in this section for over 5 YEARS, since SEPTEMBER 2009 — without ANY major problems or disputes that I presently recall about it, until your latest apparent attempts at provocation with your quite typical assertions that you know what is best for everyone, and decide to change it, and simply attempt to change a LONG standing practice without discussion. Most of us are not inclined to agree with such attitudes. I had also added the additions I had added in the order the pages were created, not on top because I most recently added them, which is what I have also regularly done for over 5 years. ~ Kalki·· 00:44, 30 January 2015 (UTC) + tweaks
Okay, Kalki, sounds good. Thank you for your explanations. No problems with the number maximum, in that regard. But let's keep new pages added to the top, and old ones removed from the bottom. Think of the next user who might accidentally remove one you'd just added, not knowing you just added it to the middle. -- Cirt (talk) 00:52, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
Again, when I add pages, I have usually added them in the order that they are created, so that the newest ones are on top, and the oldest ones get removed first, as I believe that is a fair practice, because if I had not added some of the "skipped pages" which I have, they wouldn't have been exposed on the main page at all, but the actually newest pages remain the longest. ~ Kalki·· 01:00, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
Alright, Kalki, if you want to do it that way when you add to the template, that sounds fine. -- Cirt (talk) 03:14, 30 January 2015 (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)
