Current version of this section on the Main Page:

'A Scene from the Tempest, Prospero and Ariel' by Joseph Severn.jpg  
If by your art, my dearest father, you have
Put the wild waters in this roar, allay them.
The sky, it seems, would pour down stinking pitch,
But that the sea, mounting to the welkin's cheek,
Dashes the fire out. O, I have suffered
With those that I saw suffer! A brave vessel,
Who had, no doubt, some noble creatures in her,
Dash'd all to pieces! O, the cry did knock
Against my very heart! Poor souls, they perish'd!
Had I been any god of power, I would
Have sunk the sea within the earth, or e'er
It should the good ship so have swallow'd, and
The fraughting souls within her.
~ William Shakespeare ~
in
~ The Tempest ~

Guidelines[edit]

The process of choosing which quotations are displayed on specific days is currently handled by Kalki, the director of this set of pages. If you have any suggestions, requests, questions, or complaints, then please post them on the discussion page. Since June 2005, "Quote of the day" proposals have been made at pages for each month which have sections for each date, and final selections usually reflect the result of rankings made there.

Any registered user is invited to make proposals, or to rank each candidate on these pages:

January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December

You might also check Quote of the Day (complete list) to see if your suggestion has already been featured in the past.
