One of these sets of layouts will have to be placed on the project page by an admin:

  To relate oneself in the spirit of reverence for life to the multiform manifestations of the will-to-live which together constitute the world is ethical mysticism. All profound world-view is mysticism, the essence of which is just this: that out of my unsophisticated and naïve existence in the world there comes, as a result of thought about self and the world, spiritual self-devotion to the mysterious infinite Will which is continuously manifested in the universe.

I just now developed this set of images as a good match, and abandoned numerous ideas I had for images with this or other quotes ranked roughly equivalent to this one. I had numerous interuptions every time I began to work on finding or finishing up on things for this date — and the rather erratic pre-date blocks prevented me from editing this since yesterday, so I went on to doing work on later dates, and will try to finish up work for the month sometime in the next week or so. ~ Kalki (talk · contributions) 17:40, 13 January 2011 (UTC)


A presentation of a couple of the many alternatives I had considered, and am still considering to some extent, prior to a final decision being made...

There are pros and cons for all of these, and many others that had developed in my mind, but presently I somewhat tend to favor this final set, as I believe it evokes terrestrial, celestial and social concerns and interests well, matching Schweitzer's words with a couple birds in hand, as well as some visual evocations of spiritual presences that seem to have wide popular appeal, one of them evoking a recent film that had extreme atunement to the "Reverence for Life" which was at the core of Schweitzer's faith. ~ Kalki (talk · contributions) 18:01, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Final version?[edit]

Posted at Admin's noticeboard, just prior to leaving, as I have to now attend to multiple tasks which will probably keep me busy for most of several hours... ~ Kalki (talk · contributions) 18:29, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

QOTD 14 January 2011[edit]

The images and quote for Wikiquote:Quote of the day/January 14, 2011 will have to be placed on the page by an admin. I noticed yesterday that the rather erratic pre-date protections had prevented me from doing further work on the page — and went on to do some later dates. I believe that this is the best layout of the many alternatives which I had considered:

I will attempt to finish up work on the month of January sometime in the next week or so. ~ Kalki (talk · contributions) 18:07, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
