Ancient Culture Quotes

Text Versions
Iran is the latest expression of a deep, ancient, powerful culture that’s different than ours. And we don’t know how it’s going to play itself out.  (Ancient Culture Quotes) When a young person is moved by a passion and feels compelled to go on this sort of quest, I think you have to let him. You can’t stop him. In our culture we don’t have formal rights of passage like in some ancient cultures. Subjecting yourself to risk... may be something you have to go through to be a man or a woman.  (Ancient Culture Quotes) I must admit that I am fascinated by the glories of ancient India. But when will the purveyors of Indian culture realise that not everything about our past was glorious?  (Ancient Culture Quotes) The ancient world is always accessible, no matter what culture you come from. I remember when I was growing up in India and I read the ‘Iliad’ and the ‘Odyssey.’  (Ancient Culture Quotes) In ancient African cultures, a young man was not considered a full member of the tribe, an elder, a man. He couldn’t marry and he couldn’t own land until he had killed a lion. It was symbolic.  (Ancient Culture Quotes) We have a lot of historical and religious baggage in our culture. It’s ancient; we are clannish as a species. We like things to fit into boxes, and it’s unfortunate because humans are unique and should be celebrated and embraced as such.  (Ancient Culture Quotes) Dying, we tell ourselves, is like going to sleep. This figure of speech occurs very commonly in everyday thought and language, as well as in the literature of many cultures and many ages. It was apparently quite common even in the time of the ancient Greeks.  (Ancient Culture Quotes) This is a good time to ask apologists for the Islamic regime, who degrades Islam? Who imposes stoning, forced marriage of underage girls and flogging for not wearing the veil? Do such practices represent Iran’s ancient history and culture, its ethnic and religious diversity? Its centuries of sensual and subversive poetry?  (Ancient Culture Quotes) As I obsess about my ancient problems, I feel more like I’m sinking in quicksand than lighting a torch. I’m creating neither heat nor light, just the icky, perversely pleasurable squish of self-pity between my toes. My only defense is that I’m not the only one down here in the muck - our whole culture is doting on tales of personal tragedy.  (Ancient Culture Quotes) Many people say I believe aliens built the pyramids. I don’t. In fact I’m not a supporter of the ‘ancient alien’ hypothesis at all. I think a lost human civilization is a much better explanation of the mysteries and paradoxes of ancient cultures.  (Ancient Culture Quotes) I’m inspired by lines, by shapes, when I see a dress on a person, when I see a beauty in a face, whether it’s a man from an ancient culture or a beautiful young model. So what inspires me? Life inspires me.  (Ancient Culture Quotes) We must teach our people the greatness of China’s historical culture. In our educational program we must stress Chinese history and geography so that all may know and appreciate China’s civilization of five thousand years and the far-flung boundaries of our ancient race. This will engender a greater faith in our own future.  (Ancient Culture Quotes) In our culture, the Oedipal drama succeeds in making us assume either a male or female sexual position. Certainly this is an ancient construct that’s rapidly coming apart  (Ancient Culture Quotes) We are so fortunate, as Australians, to have among us the oldest continuing cultures in human history. Cultures that link our nation with deepest antiquity. We have Aboriginal rock art in the Kimberley that is as ancient as the great Palaeolithic cave paintings at Altamira and Lascaux in Europe  (Ancient Culture Quotes) My main mistake was to have made an ancient people advance by forced marches toward independence, health, culture, affluence, comfort  (Ancient Culture Quotes) Ancient eschatological texts are actually maps of the inner territories of the psyche that seem to transcend race and culture and originate in the collective unconscious  (Ancient Culture Quotes) Mongolia is a country of rich and ancient heritage, unique culture and astounding natural beauty. It is a land of free and brave, peace-loving and hard-working people  (Ancient Culture Quotes) It is possible to speak with our heart directly. Most ancient cultures know this. We can actually converse with our heart as if it were a good friend. In modern life we have become so busy with our daily affairs and thoughts that we have lost this essential art of taking time to converse with our heart  (Ancient Culture Quotes) In every ancient culture, there are rituals to mortify the body as a way of understanding that the energy of the soul is indestructible  (Ancient Culture Quotes) When a young person is moved by a passion and feels compelled to go on this sort of quest, I think you have to let him. You can’t stop him. In our culture we don’t have formal rights of passage like in some ancient cultures.
