Dd Ancestor quotes by Greg Graffin
#1. A fossil is so powerful. It's moving. This is my ancestor. The naturalist is moved by the fossil ... not the cross. #Quote by Greg Graffin
Dd Ancestor quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#2. Each has his own tree of ancestors, but at the top of all sits Probably Arboreal. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Dd Ancestor quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#3. Each man is forever thrown back on himself alone, and there is danger that he may be shut up in the solitude of his own heart. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Dd Ancestor quotes by John Adams
#4. Without wishing to damp the ardor of curiosity or influence the freedom of inquiry, I will hazard a prediction that, after the most industrious and impartial researchers, the longest liver of you all will find no principles, institutions or systems of education more fit in general to be transmitted to your posterity than those you have received from your ancestors. #Quote by John Adams
Dd Ancestor quotes by Thomas Sowell
#5. The people made worse off by slavery were those who were enslaved. Their descendants would have been worse off today if born in Africa instead of America. Put differently, the terrible fate of their ancestors benefitted them. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Dd Ancestor quotes by Betsy Schow
#6. Our family became spelled after my ancestor pixed off two evil witch sisters. The witches' curse was supposed to doom my great- great- great grandmother to turn evil and torch the world - except the spell wasn't worded right. It didn't spec-ify which Emerald princess. So ever since, all the girls in the Emerald family have been stuck inside, since there's no way to know what generation will inherit the curse. #Quote by Betsy Schow
Dd Ancestor quotes by Paul Roland
#7. In many parts of the world, ghosts are not considered to be a creation of local folklore, but a fact of life. In China the dead are understood to co-exist with the living, a belief which gave rise to the practice of ancestor worship, while in South America the deceased are honoured with annual festivals known as the Day of the Dead which suggests that the material world and the spirit world might not be as distinct as we might like to believe. In the Eastern and Asiatic religions it is believed that death is not the end, but simply a transition from one state of being to another. The Hindu Upanishads, for example, liken each human soul to a lump of salt taken from the ocean which must ultimately return to the source. #Quote by Paul Roland
Dd Ancestor quotes by Arseny Tarkovsky
#8. 1

I don't believe in omens or fear
Forebodings. I flee from neither slander
Nor from poison. Death does not exist.
Everyone's immortal. Everything is too.
No point in fearing death at seventeen,
Or seventy. There's only here and now, and light;
Neither death, nor darkness, exists.
We're all already on the seashore;
I'm one of those who'll be hauling in the nets
When a shoal of immortality swims by.


If you live in a house - the house will not fall.
I'll summon any of the centuries,
Then enter one and build a house in it.
That's why your children and your wives
Sit with me at one table, -
The same for ancestor and grandson:
The future is being accomplished now,
If I raise my hand a little,
All five beams of light will stay with you.
Each day I used my collar bones
For shoring up the past, as though with timber,
I measured time with geodetic chains
And marched across it, as though it were the Urals.


I tailored the age to fit me.
We walked to the south, raising dust above the steppe;
The tall weeds fumed; the grasshopper danced,
Touching its antenna to the horse-shoes - and it prophesied,
Threatening me with destruction, like a monk.
I strapped my fate to the saddle;
And even now, in these coming times,
I stand up in the stirrups like a chil #Quote by Arseny Tarkovsky
Dd Ancestor quotes by Peter Benchley
#9. Maybe. Maybe not. Look, the Latin name for this fish is Carcharodon carcharias, okay? The closest ancestor we can find for it is something called Carcharodon megalodon, a fish that existed maybe thirty or forty thousand years ago. We have fossil teeth from megalodon. They're six inches long. That would put the fish at between eighty and a hundred feet. And the teeth are exactly like the teeth you see in great whites today. What I'm getting at is, suppose the two fish are really one species. What's to say megalodon is really extinct? Why should it be? #Quote by Peter Benchley
Dd Ancestor quotes by David M. Raup
#10. In the beginning, there were bacteria ... [A] nearly universal assumption is that all subsequent life descended from the original life form through a continuous chain of ancestor-descendant pairs. This assumption looks good because all living organisms share biochemical traits. It is conceivable, of course, that life originated more than once on the early earth but that all except one life form died out early, leaving a single lineage as the ancestor of life as we know it. If this did happen, it was the first important species extinction. #Quote by David M. Raup
Dd Ancestor quotes by Jacob Zuma
#11. It is wrong to leave the ANC, in fact, it is cold and rough outside the ANC. People must remain in the party and try to fix things internally because those who do leave they will attract the wrath of the ancestors, who will also bring that person bad luck #Quote by Jacob Zuma
Dd Ancestor quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#12. Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Dd Ancestor quotes by Christine Kenneally
#13. Most curious is the way that Y/surname patterns differ between countries. In Britain, on average, a man who has the same surname as another is significantly more likely to have a similar Y chromosome, and therefore a common ancestor, than he would with someone of a different surname. But there's a twist: The Y similarity depends on the frequency of the surname within the population. If you are a Smith, for example, the rule does not apply. #Quote by Christine Kenneally
Dd Ancestor quotes by Dorothy Day
#14. Tradition! We scarcely know the word anymore. We are afraid to be either proud of our ancestors or ashamed of them. We scorn nobility in name and in fact. We cling to a bourgeois mediocrity which would make it appear we are all Americans, made in the image and likeness of George Washington. #Quote by Dorothy Day
Dd Ancestor quotes by Ashraf Barhom
#15. We talk different languages, eat different foods, but all humanity has one ancestor, which started from one person, which started from one god. #Quote by Ashraf Barhom
Dd Ancestor quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#16. Do not throw away your heart. Keep your heart. Your heart is all that matters ... Throw away your ancestors! ... Throw away your shyness and the anger that lies just a few inches beneath ... Accept the truth! And if there is more than one truth, then learn to do the difficult work
learn to choose. You are good enough, you are HUMAN ENOUGH, to choose! #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Dd Ancestor quotes by Stacy Schiff
#17. The first known prosecution took place in Egypt around 1300 BC, for a crime that would today constitute practicing medicine without a license. (That supernatural medic was male.) Descended from Celtic horned gods and Teutonic folklore, Pan's distant ancestor the devil was not yet on the scene. He arrived with the New Testament, a volume notably free of witches. Nothing in the Bible connects the two, a job that fell, much later, to the church. #Quote by Stacy Schiff
Dd Ancestor quotes by John Dewey
#18. We talk much more about individualism and liberty than our ancestors. But as so often happens, when anything becomes conscious, the consciousness is compensatory for absence in practice. #Quote by John Dewey
Dd Ancestor quotes by D.D. Prince
#19. She was mine. All mine. I'd give her everything. She'd want for nothing. I'd give her everything she wanted and I'd avenge her for anyone who'd ever crossed her, including her sorry excuse for a father. I'd never wanted to give a woman so much before. I'd never wanted to take so much from her at the same time. I wanted her to give me everything she had, every emotion. I went to sleep filled with emotions I'd never had before. Possessiveness, need, and fear. #Quote by D.D. Prince
Dd Ancestor quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#20. I haven't checked, but I highly suspect that chickens evolved from an egg-laying ancestor, which would mean that there were, in fact, eggs before there were chickens. Genius. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Dd Ancestor quotes by Quammen, David
#21. The dodo itself stands as the best emblem of this general truth - that insular evolution often involves transforming an adventurous, high-flying ancestor species into a grounded descendant, no longer capable of going anywhere but extinct. It's our reminder that insular evolution, for all its wondrousness, tends to be a one-way tunnel toward doom. #Quote by Quammen, David
Dd Ancestor quotes by Toba Beta
#22. We should have known much more than our ancestors.
But if we learn less, we're much more stupid than them. #Quote by Toba Beta
Dd Ancestor quotes by Carl Jung
#23. Man's unconscious ... contains all the patterns of life and behaviour inherited from his ancestors, so that every human child, prior to consciousness, is possessed of a potential system of adapted psychic functioning. #Quote by Carl Jung
Dd Ancestor quotes by Alice Walker
#24. HELPED are those who love all the colors of all the human beings, as they love all the colors of the animals and plants; none of their children, nor any of their ancestors, nor any parts of themselves, shall be hidden from them. #Quote by Alice Walker
Dd Ancestor quotes by Sonia Sanchez
#25. I write to keep in contact with our ancestors and to spread truth to people. #Quote by Sonia Sanchez
Dd Ancestor quotes by Will Cuppy
#26. [Footnote:] Pliny the Elder described a Whale called "Balaena or Whirlpool, which is so long and broad as to take up more in length and breadth than two acres of ground." This brings up again the old question: Are the classics doomed? Our ancestors believed that four years of this sort of information would inevitably produce a President, or at least a Cabinet Member. It didn't seem to work out that way. #Quote by Will Cuppy
Dd Ancestor quotes by Richard Dawkins
#27. As I have put it before, if the second dinosaur to the left of the tall cycad tree had not happened to sneeze and thereby fail to catch the tiny, shrew-like ancestor of all the mammals, we would none of us be here. We all can regard ourselves as exquisitely improbable. But here, in a triumph of hindsight, we are. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Dd Ancestor quotes by Amelia Barr
#28. The breed is more than the pasture. As you know, the cuckoo lays her eggs in any bird's nest; it may be hatched among blackbirds or robins or thrushes, but it is always a cuckoo ... a man cannot deliver himself from his ancestors. #Quote by Amelia Barr
Dd Ancestor quotes by Marion Zimmer Bradley
#29. A friend of ours has a hobby doing genealogy, and we found out that we were cousins in the ninth degree, that we had a common ancestor on the Mayflower. #Quote by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Dd Ancestor quotes by Don Marquis
#30. We pay for the mistakes of our ancestors, and it seems only fair that they should leave us the money to pay with. #Quote by Don Marquis
Dd Ancestor quotes by Jose Ortega Y Gasset
#31. The hero's will is not that of his ancestors nor of his society, but his own. This will to be oneself is heroism. #Quote by Jose Ortega Y Gasset
Dd Ancestor quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#32. If you share a common ancestor with somebody, you're related to them. It doesn't mean that you're going to invite them to the family reunion, but it means that you share DNA. I think it's fascinating. #Quote by Henry Louis Gates
Dd Ancestor quotes by Don Marquis
#33. Blood will tell, but often it tells too much. #Quote by Don Marquis
Dd Ancestor quotes by David Berg
#34. One of the best things about Heaven is that we will be able to reunite with loved ones who have already passed on. It will be the greatest family reunion we've ever known, with our loved ones, relatives and ancestors all together in one place at the same time, rejoicing. All together at last! #Quote by David Berg
Dd Ancestor quotes by Charles Dickens
#35. Old Marley was as dead as a doornail.
Mind! I don't mean to say that, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a doornail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a doornail. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Dd Ancestor quotes by Tom Reiss
#36. The former King Louis XVI, who, after titles were abolished, was now simply called "Louis Capet" - a mocking reference to his distant ancestor Hugh Capet, who had assumed the throne in the year 987. #Quote by Tom Reiss
Dd Ancestor quotes by Ted Hughes
#37. And that's how we measure out our real respect for people - by the degree of feeling they can register, the voltage of life they can carry and tolerate - and enjoy. End of sermon. As Buddha says: live like a mighty river. And as the old Greeks said: live as though all your ancestors were living again through you. #Quote by Ted Hughes
Dd Ancestor quotes by Northrop Frye
#38. The particular myth that's been organizing this talk, and in a way the whole series, is the story of the Tower of Babel in the Bible. The civilization we live in at present is a gigantic technological structure, a skyscraper almost high enough to reach the moon. It looks like a single world-wide effort, but it's really a deadlock of rivalries; it looks very impressive, except that it has no genuine human dignity. For all its wonderful machinery, we know it's really a crazy ramshackle building, and at any time may crash around our ears. What the myth tells us is that the Tower of Babel is a work of human imagination, that its main elements are words, and that what will make it collapse is a confusion of tongues. All had originally one language, the myth says. The language is not English or Russian or Chinese or any common ancestor, if there was one. It is the language that makes Shakespeare and Pushkin authentic poets, that gives a social vision to both Lincoln and Gandhi. It never speaks unless we take the time to listen in leisure, and it speaks only in a voice too quiet for panic to hear. And then all it has to tell us, when we look over the edge of our leaning tower, is that we are not getting any nearer heaven, and that it is time to return to earth. [p.98] #Quote by Northrop Frye
Dd Ancestor quotes by Fatimah Asghar
#39. when'd the west set in your bones? you survive
each winter like you were made for snow, a stranger

to each ancestor who lights your path. your parents,
dead, never taught you their language -- stranger

to everything that tries to bring you home. #Quote by Fatimah Asghar
Dd Ancestor quotes by Russell Brand
#40. Then, of course, through the umbilical link we all tumble backwards down the spiralling DNA staircase to one common ancestor in Africa, and before that some bunch of curious monkeys. Down and down we go unto the sea, unto the dust, the single cellular dust. What impulse drove one cell to become two? What yearning pulled the fish on to the land? What caused apes to walk upright? Some invisible magnetic pull. Is there a difference between attraction and intention? Where is evolution taking us? #Quote by Russell Brand
Dd Ancestor quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#41. Oblonsy was fond of a pleasant joke, and sometimes liked to perplex a simple-minded man by observing that if you're going to be proud of your ancestry, why stop short at Prince Rurik and repudiate your oldest ancestor - the ape? #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Dd Ancestor quotes by Orson Scott Card
#42. It was not right, thought Han Fei-tzu, for his wife to die before him: her ancestor-of-the-heart had outlived her husband. Besides, wives should live longer than husbands. Women were more complete inside themselves. They were also better at living in their children. They were never as solitary as a man alone. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Dd Ancestor quotes by Guy De Maupassant
#43. We live always under the weight of the old and odious customs ... of our barbarous ancestors. #Quote by Guy De Maupassant
Dd Ancestor quotes by Michael Yarus
#44. It is unclear how much longer people will write on dried and flattened wood. Trees do so much for humans and for our planet that it hardly seems fair to ask them to carry our thoughts as well. From Life from an RNA World: The Ancestor Within. #Quote by Michael Yarus
Dd Ancestor quotes by Bob Waterston
#45. By comparing the human and chimp genomes, we can see the process of evolution clearly in the changes (in DNA) since we diverged from our common ancestor. #Quote by Bob Waterston
