Quotes of the day from previous years:

It is only by preserving faith in human dreams that we may, after all, perhaps some day make them come true. ~ James Branch Cabell
Leave the beaten track behind occasionally and dive into the woods. Every time you do you will be certain to find something you have never seen before. ~ Alexander Graham Bell (born March 3, 1847)
In mathematics the art of asking questions is more valuable than solving problems. ~ Georg Cantor (born March 3, 1845)


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)
