- "image Credits" section and/or page or pages, as suggested by an editor on my talk page.
- Create "Creation/Creativity" as distinct page apart from Invention and Creationism
- Non-violence as a distinct page.
- I took on a commitment at Wikiquote:WikiProject Weekly Cleanup to try to do at least one cleanup of tagged pages a week; I have not continued doing so, but have cleaned up pages regularly, though not always tagged ones; this is just a small listing of some I will target for cleanup and other work in coming weeks.
Indexing work to do…
- I usually choose a quote or two when adding these, I simply haven't got around to that yet... (and some of the "significantly worked on" might already be listed, I simply haven't checked on that yet...)
- Do Creation / + Mermaids Singing — I do intend to start a page this, but there is only one quote on line I can find, which is used, and I did not have time to do transcriptions today, as I had hoped. Will probably do some within a few days ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 02:00, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
- update this list and index
I'm going to work hard not to have any wrong thoughts!
|~ A child in The Children's Story ~
~ James Clavell ~
I promote a forgiveness of those who fall into many forms of error, but I also assert that errors, especially those which ignore the principles of Justice and Liberty, should be opposed, and opposed regularly and vigorously. I am well aware that those with very limited and constrained forms of imagination, intelligence and ideas OFTEN wish to find ways to constrain or control the ideas of others, and to suppress, punish and destroy any indications of such ideas or truths as might go beyond the bounds which their fragile or fearful little minds find comfortable to face, usually without being too obvious about it, and with exaggerating focus on such regulations and policies "for the good" of everyone they choose to find worthy of consideration — which is usually a VERY limited circle, and such as can serve their own aims — often with an extreme ignorance, denial or dismissal of such principles upon which any truly legitimate "policies" must be founded. Even as a young child I recognized that so-called social interactions that depended upon various forms of dishonesty were not truly "social" at all — but actually, at best, "semi-social" and more often truly "anti-social", no matter what kindly generous appearances people might wish to garnish their own bigotries and extreme prejudices with.
I am genuinely not prone to be harsh to those not being deliberately harsh to others — and yet I am certainly not always prone to be gentle with those I perceive being needlessly harsh, intolerant or cruel to anyone. Even though I might forgive their ignorance and confusion, I will not always choose to pardon them from confrontations with aspects or consequences of their errors, that they might prefer not to face. I am a very complex person — and I respect others as such too — and I know that any mandated erasures or ignoring of all differences that might exist is certainly NOT a genuinely healthy answer to the problems of various forms of social and anti-social contentions. In this project and elsewhere I intend to help make many ideas of those I consider the most wise and charitable of human beings far better known and adequately understood by many — and indicate applicabilities which I believe can be helpful. This year has just begun, but I have many ideas of how to occupy my time in coming months, and am always prepared to adapt and grow with new circumstances, as any healthy individual usually is, and any healthy human endeavors always are. So it goes... ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 12:19, 22 January 2014 (UTC) + tweaks
We shall not grow wiser before we learn that much that we have done was very foolish.

some images deleted from Baruch Spinoza
- some of the images deleted from Baruch Spinoza, removed some months ago, some of which I might eventually restore, but have many other things to attend to today and in coming weeks. ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 19:04, 13 January 2014 (UTC) + tweaks
Most of these which had been here have now been restored to the Spinoza page or to Ethics (book), which had been an overly large portion of the page, and had been moved some time after the images were removed. Some I simply replaced with other available images. Of the 2 images I have retained here, only the one with the Borges quote has not been restored, because there is currently not enough room for it in its section, and I believe other images currently there are generally preferable. ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 11:42, 30 January 2014 (UTC) + tweaks
some images deleted from Sri Chinmoy
- These were removed from the Sri Chinmoy page, and knowing he apparently had some objections to gay lifestyles, I can agree to keep them removed, though I believe they illustrate some aspects of his statements well. I will seek some other less controversial images to use with the captions ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 12:51, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Very early in my life, by the time I was 5 or 6, the Essays of Michel de Montaigne and various thoughts upon them had inspired me, and even then I had in mind ideas of creating short essays largely built around significant quotes and their various interpretations, and I will probably begin filling many of the pages listed here with quotes about various ideas and concepts, and a few relevant comments about them within a few weeks. "We've only just begun…" ;)

It may often be noticed, the less virtuous people are, the more they shrink away from the slightest whiff of the odour of un-sanctity. The good are ever the most charitable, the pure are the most brave.

- Barnstar Bank — just getting this started… will probably develop it with brief comments on their significance within the coming weeks.
