Foolish the doctor who despises the knowledge acquired by the ancients  (Ancients Quotes) The ancients knew something, which we seem to have forgotten  (Ancients Quotes) The ancients stole all our ideas from us  (Ancients Quotes) The ancients said: Hulk to be whole  (Ancients Quotes) The ancients, sir, are the ancients, and we are the people of today  (Ancients Quotes) Those we call the ancients were really new in everything  (Ancients Quotes) Speak of the moderns without contempt, and of the ancients without idolatry  (Ancients Quotes) The ancients called beauty the flowering of virtue  (Ancients Quotes) Bacchus, n.: A convenient deity invented by the ancients as an excuse for getting drunk  (Ancients Quotes) Seek not the paths of the ancients;Seek that which the ancients sought  (Ancients Quotes) The ancients dreaded death: the Christian can only fear dying  (Ancients Quotes) The ancients understood the regulation of power better than the regulation of liberty  (Ancients Quotes) All my best thoughts were stolen by the ancients  (Ancients Quotes) In English we must use adjectives to distinguish the different kinds of love for which the ancients had distinct names.  (Ancients Quotes) Ancients knew that you need guidance, patronage and protection as you move from one place or state to another, whenever you cross a bridge. You had better know what you are doing when you leave one group or place to join another  (Ancients Quotes) Tombs decked by the arts can scarcely represent death as a formidable enemy; we do not, indeed, like the ancients, carve sports and dances in the sarcophagus, but thought is diverted from the bier by works that tell of immortality, even from the altar of death  (Ancients Quotes) Do not take the yardstick of your ignorance to measure what the ancients knew, and call everything which you do not know lies. Do not call things untrue because they are marvelous, but give them a fair consideration  (Ancients Quotes) Speak of the moderns without contempt and of the ancients without idolatry; judge them all by their merits, but not by their age  (Ancients Quotes) More immediately, by waxing soulful you will have granted yourself the possibility of ecstatic participation in what the ancients considered a divinely animated universe. And on a day to day basis, folks, it doesn’t get any better than that  (Ancients Quotes) If the ancients left us ideas, to our credit be it spoken that we moderns are building houses for them  (Ancients Quotes) We tend to scoff at the beliefs of the ancients. But we can’t scoff at them personally, to their faces, and this is what annoys me  (Ancients Quotes) In taste and imagination, in the graces of style, in the arts of persuasion, in the magnificence of public works, the ancients were at least our equals  (Ancients Quotes) Knowing how to fight made men more bold, because no one fears doing what it seems to him he has learned to do. Therefore, the ancients wanted their citizens to be trained in every warlike action  (Ancients Quotes) What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease  (Ancients Quotes) It is my great hope someday, to see science and decision makers rediscover what the ancients have always known. Namely that our highest currency is respect  (Ancients Quotes) The ancients tell us what is best; but we must learn of the moderns what is fittest  (Ancients Quotes) Modern writers are the moons of literature; they shine with reflected light, with light borrowed from the ancients  (Ancients Quotes) Our present addiction to pollsters and forecasters is a symptom of our chronic uncertainty about the future... We watch our experts read the entrails of statistical tables and graphs the way the ancients watched their soothsayers read the entrails of a chicken  (Ancients Quotes) We modern egalitarians are tempted to the primal sin of pride in the opposite way from the ancients. The old, aristocratic form of pride was the desire to be better than others. The new, democratic form is the desire not to have anyone better than yourself. It is just as spiritually deadly and does not even carry with it the false pleasure of gloating superiority  (Ancients Quotes)
