Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by John French Sloan
#1. Study the great brush drawings of the Chinese and Japanese ... When we try to imitate their conventions for perspective, form and texture we lose the content, because those artists were part of an ancient tradition. Our tradition changes rapidly, our schools of thought come to fruition quickly and decay again. We see differently. #Quote by John French Sloan
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Gosen Wakashu
#2. To tell others that
It is a rumor
Will not do.
When your own heart asks
How will you respond? #Quote by Gosen Wakashu
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Alec J. Ross
#3. Not only does Japan have an economic need and the technological know-how for robots, but it also has a cultural predisposition. The ancient Shinto religion, practiced by 80 percent of Japanese, includes a belief in animism, which holds that both objects and human beings have spirits. As a result, Japanese culture tends to be more accepting of robot companions as actual companions than is Western culture, which views robots as soulless machines. In a culture where the inanimate can be considered to be just as alive as the animate, robots #Quote by Alec J. Ross
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Richard Flanagan
#4. And they were deeply moved not so much by the poetry as by their sensitivity to poetry; not so much by the genius of the poem as by their wisdom in understanding the poem; not in knowing the poem but in knowing the poem demonstrated the higher side of themselves and of the Japanese spirit - #Quote by Richard Flanagan
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Jonathan Gottschall
#5. For example, the ancient Japanese had onna-zumo (women's wrestling), but as the sports historian Allen Guttmann writes, "The debased motivation for this activity is suggested by the names of the wrestlers: 'Big Boobs,' 'Deep Crevice,' and 'Holder of the Balls. #Quote by Jonathan Gottschall
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Orlando Figes
#6. The ancient bond between the tsarist state and Russian nationalism could be used to create powerful emotions when the enemy came from the heathen east. The Mongol invasion had left a powerful mark on the Russian psyche. It was expressed in a deep anxiety about the mixed Eurasian roots of the people and it's culture, which made it easy for an educated liberal to convince themselves that this war was nothing less than a defense of Russia's European identity against the Asian hordes. #Quote by Orlando Figes
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Kristina McMorris
#7. The line between him and the enemy had simultaneously blurred and solidified. Somehow, while perhaps it shouldn't have, this thought provided a strange sense of peace. #Quote by Kristina McMorris
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Haruo Shirane
#8. If love goes too far, it turns into cruelty. #Quote by Haruo Shirane
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
#9. To the ancients, bears symbolized resurrection. The creature goes to sleep for a long time, its heartbeat decreases to almost nothing. The male often impregnates the female right before hibernation, but miraculously, egg and sperm do not unite right away. They float separately in her uterine broth until much later. Near the end of hibernation, the egg and sperm unite and cell division begins, so that the cubs will be born in the spring when the mother is awakening, just in time to care for and teach her new offspring. Not only by reason of awakening from hibernation as though from death, but much more so because the she-bear awakens with new young, this creature is a profound metaphor for our lives, for return and increase coming from something that seemed deadened.

The bear is associated with many huntress Goddesses: Artemis and Diana in Greece and Rome, and Muerte and Hecoteptl, mud women deities in the Latina cultures. These Goddesses bestowed upon women the power of tracking, knowing, 'digging out' the psychic aspects of all things. To the Japanese the bear is the symbol of loyalty, wisdom, and strength. In northern Japan where the Ainu tribe lives, the bear is one who can talk to God directly and bring messages back for humans. The cresent moon bear is considered a sacred being, one who was given the white mark on his throat by the Buddhist Goddess Kwan-Yin, whose emblem is the crescent moon. Kwan-Yin is the Goddess of Deep Compassion and the bear is her emiss #Quote by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Yukio Mishima
#10. It's odd how one's memories of youth turn out so bleak. Why does the business of growing up - one's recollections of growth itself - have to be so tragic? I still haven't found the answer. I doubt if anybody has. When I finally reach that stage at which the placid wisdom of old age ... occasionally descends on a person, then I too may suddenly discover that I understand. But I doubt whether, by that time, understanding will have much point. #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Savitri Devi
#11. Whether Hindus or Greeks, Egyptians or Japanese, Chinese, Sumerians, or ancient Americans
or even Romans, the most "modern" among people of antiquity
they all placed the Golden Age, the Age of Truth, the rule of Kronos or of Ra or of any other gods on earth
the glorious beginning of the slow, downward unfurling of history, whatever name it be given
far behind them in the past. #Quote by Savitri Devi
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Jean Lorrain
#12. Then Chameroy spoke. 'You always put the blame on opium, but as I see it the case of Freneuse is much more complicated. Him, an invalid? No - a character from the tales of Hoffmann! Have you never taken the trouble to look at him carefully? That pallor of decay; the twitching of his bony hands, more Japanese than chrysanthemums; the arabesque profile; that vampiric emaciation - has all of that never given you cause to reflect? In spite of his supple body and his callow face Freneuse is a hundred thousand years old. That man has lived before, in ancient times under the reigns of Heliogabalus, Alexander IV and the last of the Valois. What am I saying? That man is Henri III himself. I have in my library an edition of Ronsard - a rare edition, bound in pigskin with metal trimmings - which contains a portrait of Henri engraved on vellum. One of these nights I will bring the volume here to show you, and you may judge for yourselves. Apart from the ruff, the doublet and the earrings, you would believe that you were looking at the Due de Freneuse. As far as I'm concerned, his presence here inevitably makes me ill - and so long as he is present, there is such an oppression, such a heaviness... #Quote by Jean Lorrain
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Adolf Hitler
#13. Pride in one's own race-and that does not imply contempt for other races-is also a normal and healthy sentiment. I have never regarded the Chinese or the Japanese as being inferior to ourselves. They belong to ancient civilisations, and I admit freely that their past history is superior to our own. They have the right to be proud of their past, just as we have the right to be proud of the civilisation to which we belong. Indeed, I believe the more steadfast the Chinese and the Japanese remain in their pride of race, the easier I shall find it to get on with them. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Jared Diamond
#14. Thus, immigrants from Korea really did make a big contribution to the modern Japanese, though we cannot yet say whether that was because of massive immigration or else modest immigration amplified by a high rate of population increase. The Ainu are more nearly the descendants of Japan's ancient Jomon inhabitants, mixed with Korean genes of Yayoi colonists and of the modern Japanese. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by A.O. Peart
#15. One group of huge men from Congo and Ghana yelled insults at the beasts from the top of their lungs. They brandished war hammers, Nzappa zaps, Japanese Tachi blades, and ancient Greek Harpē swords. #Quote by A.O. Peart
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by John W. Dower
#16. For all their talk of democracy, the conquerors worked hard to engineer consensus; and on many critical issues, they made clear that the better part of political wisdom was silence and conformism. So well did they succeed in reinforcing this consciousness that after they left, and time passed, many non-Japanese including Americans came to regard such attitudes as peculiarly Japanese. #Quote by John W. Dower
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Yuval Noah Harari

Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Christopher McDougall
#18. It's a natural law (or supernatural, if you're so inclined) that weird things appear where people tend to disappear. African jungles, Pacific islands, Himalayan wastelands - wherever expeditionary parties go missing, that's where lost species, Stonehengey stone idols, the flitting shadows of yetis, and ancient, unsurrendering Japanese soldiers are sure to pop up.

Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Matia Ben Ephraim
#19. Any source of truth or wisdom is a welcome one. #Quote by Matia Ben Ephraim
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Elizabeth Cary
#20. Move thy tongue,
For silence is a sign of discontent. #Quote by Elizabeth Cary
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by John Calvin
#21. Pagan philosophers set up reason as the sole guide of life, of wisdom and conduct; but Christian philosophy demands of us that we surrender our reason to the Holy Spirit; and this means that we no longer live for ourselves, but that Christ lives and reigns within us (Rom 12:1; Eph 4:23; Gal 2:20). #Quote by John Calvin
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Kristian Goldmund Aumann
#22. Poetry is both; enlightenment and wisdom. #Quote by Kristian Goldmund Aumann
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Abhijit V. Banerjee
#23. We must arm ourselves with patience and wisdom and listen to the poor what they want. This is the best way to avoid the trap of ignorance, ideology and inertia on our side. #Quote by Abhijit V. Banerjee
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#24. Love leaves a beauty mark on your soul. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Matthieu Ricard
#25. Children, old people, vagabonds laugh easily and heartily: they have nothing to lose and hope for little. In renunciation lies a delicious taste of simplicity and deep peace. #Quote by Matthieu Ricard
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Victor Hugo
#26. The learned man knows that he is ignorant. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Muni Natarajan
#27. Realize the self of yourself. #Quote by Muni Natarajan
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Martha Beck
#28. 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. #Quote by Martha Beck
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Steven Pinker
#29. Entro, evo, info. These concepts define the narrative of human progress: the tragedy we were born into, and our means for eking out a better existence. The first piece of wisdom they offer is that misfortune maybe no one's fault. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#30. You don't need to be perfect; just be yourself. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Michael R. Licona
#31. This is a challenge when we consider the four earliest extant biographies of Jesus, known as the canonical Gospels. There is somewhat of a consensus among contemporary scholars that the Gospels belong to the genre of Greco-Roman biography (bios). Bioi offered the ancient biographer great flexibility for rearranging material and inventing speeches in order to communicate the teachings, philosophy, and political beliefs of the subject, and they often included legend. Because bios was a flexible genre, it is often difficult to determine where history ends and legend begins.24 #Quote by Michael R. Licona
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by J.D. Vance
#32. People like Brian and me don't lose contact with our parents because we don't care; we lose contact with them to survive. We never stop loving, and we never lose hope that our loved ones will change. Rather, we are forced, either by wisdom or by the law, to take the path of self-preservation. #Quote by J.D. Vance
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#33. The body is a temple, where God dwells. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#34. Time is taken to derive wisdom #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Raphael Zernoff
#35. We may be focused on looking forward and upward yet looking inward can be the easiest path to take. #Quote by Raphael Zernoff
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Erich Segal
#36. He had spent most of his lifetime studying the art of medicine and realized now that he would never really understand its mysteries.
For medicine is an eternal quest for reasons - causes that explain effects.
Science cannot comprehend a miracle. #Quote by Erich Segal
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#37. We are always curious about miracles even though our life is a miracle. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Ancient Japanese Wisdom quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#38. You have the power to turn this tearful world into a cheerful one. The question is, will you? #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
