The World Calendar "is probably the ultimate solution to ending the confusion in our national and international system of time reckoning. It represents the labor of many individuals, as well as the best features of all 12-month calendar schemes." -- The Riddle of Time, © 1963 .

“. . . An arrangement whereby one might know, without looking at a printed schedule, the day of the week on which a given date would invariably fall, would be a vast improvement.”

‘So there we are, with a calendar that has come through many adventures and is still far from perfect. As a matter of fact, a really perfect calendar is impossible. It has to be a compromise, for it attempts to reconcile natural fixed periods, which are not reconcilable. The things to be desired are the greatest accuracy combined with the greatest feasible convenience. We cannot scrap or change our days or our years without altering the motion of the sun or earth—those are immovable obstacles. We could, but do not desire to, change our week; the seven-day week is too deeply imbedded in tradition, religion and convenience. But we can change our month, which is an irrational division of time conforming to neither moon nor sun.’
--from A 1948 CALENDAR REFORM Perspective,, JCR Vol. 18

‘. . . For, in the desired reform, it is not a matter of obtaining the ideal calendar but that which is the most practical, that is to say the one which remedies the depreciatory disadvantages of the present one without disturbing our religious or civil life. The project of The World Calendar Association responds perfectly to these demands; conceived in such a manner that it may be adapted to any race, country or religion, it would certainly prove for our modern world, so enervated, to be an element of order, stability concord, unity and even of religiousness. When the nations agree on the subject, it will be an event of good omen and one which will have constituted, furthermore, the most vast agreement ever passed among the civil and religious authorities of the world.’
