I will cherish these few specks of time.
~ Everything Everywhere All at Once ~

Well is ALL.
Well All IS.

Do not be deceived by the way men of bad faith misuse words and names … Things are set up as contraries that are not even in the same category. Listen to me: the opposite of radical is superficial, the opposite of liberal is stingy; the opposite of conservative is destructive. Thus I will describe myself as a radical conservative liberal; but certain of the tainted red fish will swear that there can be no such fish as that. Beware of those who use words to mean their opposites. At the same time have pity on them, for usually this trick is their only stock in trade.
~ R. A. Lafferty ~

I remain very busy with many urgent and diverse tasks and expect to very often be doing very minimal editing here for most of the days of most of the coming years.
Though I once regularly spent many hours of most days at least monitoring this site, I now quite often spend less than an hour a day doing so, at various random periods within any day. There are sometimes stretches of weeks where I am hardly online at all, most days. There may be a few periods in some years where I will have the opportunity for extensive activities here for days at a time, but I am not actually counting on that occurring very often. I shall continue to usually check in at least daily, most of the time, but Time shall reveal what opportunities times can provide.

Kierkegaard Quote Source - Proposed by Kalki February 14 2007[edit]

Hi Kalki,

Do you know the actual source for this quote? I don't think Kierkegaard is the author, and your proposed QOTD from Feb 2007 is the earliest known publication of this quote (digital, book, or otherwise) that I can find.

"When one has once fully entered the realm of love, the world — no matter how imperfect — becomes rich and beautiful, it consists solely of opportunities for love."

Any more specific info on the quote origin would be great.

Thanks for the inquiry. I seem to have first added this to the Kierkegaard page as being cited to Works of Love (1847) in an edit of 13th February 2007; I do not currently recall what source I had for that attribution. It seems to have remained on the page in the subsection for that work, prior to the page being extensively broken up into pages for separate works by other editors. None of the translations currently accessible to me have the statement, but it could be in a lesser-known translation or arose somewhere as a paraphrase of some statements within it, or perhaps is an improper attribution altogether; I will investigate it further to the extent I can in coming days. ~ ♌︎Kalki ⚓︎ 00:11, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oregon or Colorado[edit]

Hi Kalki: I thought it was Colorado's Supreme Court which removed Trump from the ballot not Oregon? Ottawahitech (talk) 01:49, 21 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oops. You're right — I was in a rush yesterday to get a layout done before leaving, and didn’t notice I was posting to the wrong state — will be amending things now. ~ ♌︎Kalki ⚓︎ 21:47, 21 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello, someone started a request for comment against your behaviours on this project, Wikiquote:Village pump#User:Kalki using Wikiquote's QOTD for political propaganda. I'm just noticing you about that.
BTW, if possible, I'd like to recuse from such a political case. -Lemonaka 01:26, 3 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
