Turvey Australian quotes by Leviak B. Kelly
#19. The Australian Aboriginal cave paintings, from this period, are the first hints of religion that humans have as proof of religious behaviour. The caves in which the paintings are found date to 50,000 years ago through forensic geology and carbon dating. Most of the images found in their religious stories and ceremonies are depicted in these caves. We also have confirmation from the aborigines themselves that these images are their religious images. These paintings also are likely to be significant evidence for linking the use of Amanita Muscaria to its use 50,000 years ago. This is because 50,000 years ago was when humanity entered Australia and also because Amanita Muscaria produces religious like experiences. #Quote by Leviak B. Kelly
Turvey Australian quotes by Gideon Haigh

#23. I think we have to keep working enormously hard to see that every single Indigenous child - every Australian child - has true equality of opportunity. We've got to work harder at it. I think, you know, the heartland issue for us is the gap; the gap in life expectancy in this country. #Quote by Quentin Bryce

"Oooh, fancied it. Say more like that," I begged, smiling into the pillow.
"Like what, Grace?"
"Talk British to me," I whispered, only half joking.
"More," I encouraged.
"More!" I demanded.
If I could hear Jack Hamilton say a second word for the rest of my life, it would be knickers.

"Say it!"

"Aaaahhhhhhh!" I screamed into the phone. #Quote by Alice Clayton

Turvey Australian quotes by John Donohoe
#32. It's just logic- what went in.....didn't come out!
The amount of jewellery stolen in over 600 of Ben Hall's robberies has not been found.
Apart from a few small discoveries, no-one has put up their hand as to finding a large cache of stolen goods.
My assumption then is: it's still out there! #Quote by John Donohoe

#35. If I were asked about what to do about the level of insecurity and anxiety in contemporary Australian society, I wouldn't start with politics and I wouldn't say too much about terrorism.

Turvey Australian quotes by Iggy Azalea

Turvey Australian quotes by Richard Di Natale
#37. Tony Abbott might think coal's good for humanity, of course it was an important driver in the story of the Australian nation. But when we're talking about the 21st Century and those industries that are gonna take us forward, it won't be coal. #Quote by Richard Di Natale

Turvey Australian quotes by Ann Macbeth

Turvey Australian quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#42. The glass display cases had shown rock-throwers crafted by the Australian aborigines - like giant wooden shoehorns, they'd looked, but smoothed and carved and ornamented with the most painstaking care. In the 40,000 years since anatomically modern humans had migrated to Australia from Asia, nobody had invented the bow-and-arrow. It really made you appreciate how non-obvious was the idea of Progress. Why would you even think of Invention as something important, if all your history's heroic tales were of great warriors and defenders instead of Thomas Edison? How could anyone possibly have suspected, while carving a rock-thrower with painstaking care, that someday human beings would invent rocket ships and nuclear energy? #Quote by Eliezer Yudkowsky
Turvey Australian quotes by Liev Schreiber
#43. I am very good with dialects, but the two that I can't do for some reason are the South African and Australian. #Quote by Liev Schreiber

Turvey Australian quotes by Kate Burridge
#45. 'Bloody' has now become an important indicator of Australianness and of cultural values such as friendliness, informality, laid-backness, mateship - and perhaps even the Australian dislike and distrust of verbal and intellectual graces #Quote by Kate Burridge
Turvey Australian quotes by George Mikes
#46. What beefsteak is to Argentina, flamenco to Spain, cool reserve and self-control in all situations to an Englishman, what vodka is to a Russian and beer to a Bavarian, what money is to a Swiss, that is outdoor-life to an Australian. It is a noble mania, better than vodka, better than cool reserve, better than money. #Quote by George Mikes
Turvey Australian quotes by Kevin Rudd
#47. I've been around long enough to not take seriously statements like I am about to be crushed. I'm about how do we seek re-election of the Australian government, how we prevent Tony Abbott from being elected. The bottom line is that it should be all hands to the pump rather than saying other, frankly negative and internally divisive things. #Quote by Kevin Rudd
Turvey Australian quotes by Neville Cardus
#48. The Australian temper is at bottom grim. It is as though the sun has dried up his nature. #Quote by Neville Cardus
Turvey Australian quotes by Tim Winton
