Common sense isn't.
When I went looking for an easy way to put random quotes into my web pages, here is the web page I found (Now at Archive.org). I liked Server-Side Includes and perl, which is why I chose this script. Highland Media is
stillno longer around, but they no longer support the script or make it available for download.
(With permission) I am making the script available here.
Here is the distribution Download in zip format: quote.zip
And here is the Additional Quote File with Dhamapada quotes (teachings of the Buddha): dhamapd.zip
There are also some more small quote files in text format still available from the page at Archive.org. That page also explains the script operation.
Here is a quote test page that shows several quotes at once.
Disclaimer: I do not provide any formal support for the script. I may be able to give some informal help as time permits. By downloading you agree to hold me, Highland Media, the author or any agent of Highland Media harmless of any damages directly or indirectly caused by the use of this or any free script.
|Quote of the moment|
|Now came still evening on, and twilight gray Had in her sober livery all things clad; Silence accompany'd; for beast and bird, They to their grassy couch, these to their nests, Were slunk, all but the wakeful nightingale; She all night long her amorous descant sung; Silence was pleas'd. Now glow'd the firmament With living sapphires; Hesperus, that led The starry host, rode brightest, till the moon, Rising in clouded majesty, at length Apparent queen unveil'd her peerless light, And o'er the dark her silver mantle threw.|
|~ John Milton, Paradise Lost. Book iv. Line 598. ~|
