WARNING: This is an experimental version of a Quote of the Day month page for the fictional month "NoRemember".


OctOgre << NoRemember 1 2 3 >> Dismember

We are still developing the new procedures for selecting quotes of the day. This page is for quote of the day proposals specifically for dates in the month of June, and quotes proposed should ideally have some relation to the day, or persons born on it, though sometimes exceptions can be made for quotes that relate to notable current events. Developing ideas of people or works to quote on specific days can be explored through the Wikipedia page : List of historical anniversaries.


Ranking system

4 : Excellent - should definitely be used. (Perhaps, at most, only one quote per day should be ranked thus by any user, as to avoid confusions)
3 : Very Good - strong desire to see it used
2 : Good - some desire to see it used.
1 : Acceptable - but with no particular desire to see it used
0 : Not acceptable - not appropriate for use as a quote of the day.

NoRemember 1

2004: Lorem ipsum 1. ~ Author 1

2005: Lorem ipsum 2. ~ Author 2

Suggestions[edit]

I retaliated [against the calf worshippers] by visiting on them all manner of mischief, but I concluded, after some centuries of chronic relapsing on their part, that rage and punishment was not the best way to hold a clientele. It is only the most primitive of mortals who is swayed by that sort of thing. ~ JHVH speaking to Satan, Piers Anthony, For Love of Evil (1988)

I realized suddenly that I was in an impossible situation, and there was really no way out. No acceptable way. I could not go on — so I stopped. ~ Alice, on her suicide; Piers Anthony, Ghost (1986)

NoRemember 2

2004: Lorem ipsum 1. ~ Author 1

2005: Lorem ipsum 2. ~ Author 2

Suggestions[edit]

If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster. ~ Isaac Asimov, LIFE magazine (January 1984)

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent. ~ Isaac Asimov, "Foundation", Astounding Science-Fiction, May 1942

Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. ~ Robert Heinlein, Starship Troopers (1959)

NoRemember 3

2004: Lorem ipsum 1. ~ Author 1

2005: Lorem ipsum 2. ~ Author 2

Suggestions[edit]

… I will be a sham, but not a snob. I will let every man, woman, or child, no matter how greedy or wicked, claim to have a personal relationship with me. In other words, I will be as arbitrary, inconsistent, ignorant, pushy, and common as humans are, and what more have they ever wanted in a god? ~ the "small god"; Sheri S. Tepper, "The Visitor" (2002)

In contrast to my husband, I can pronounce the word nuclear. ~ Laura Welch Bush (2005)
