People will not look forward to posterity, who never look backward to their ancestors.

Edmund Burke
Any living cell carries with it the experience of a billion years of experimentation by its ancestors.

Max Delbruck
As individuals and as a nation, we now suffer from social narcissism. The beloved Echo of our ancestors, the virgin America, has been abandoned. We have fallen in love with our own image, with images of our making, which turn out to be images of ourselves.

Daniel J. Boorstin
Big cities are chaotic. And chaos for humans - who have experience from their ancestors - is the last step before conflict. So, in the park, every kind of visual contradiction has been eliminated.

John Hench
But it is obvious that our fathers, whose efforts have planted these great and prosperous cities along the once lonely trails of our own broad land, received all the fundamentals of

civilization as a heritage from their European ancestors.

James H. Breasted
Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history. Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun, to make money and to express ourselves.

Phyllis George

Each has his own tree of ancestors, but at the top of all sits Probably Arboreal.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Every book is a quotation; and every house is a quotation out of all forests, and mines, and stone quarries; and every man

is a quotation from all his ancestors.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every man is a quotation from all his ancestors.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Richard Dawkins
Gentility is what is left over from rich ancestors after the money is gone.

John Ciardi
Humans are upsetting a fragile balance that their own human ancestors established.

Joan D. Vinge
I admire our ancestors, whoever they were. I think the first self-conscious person must have shaken in his boots.

Because as he becomes self-conscious, he's no longer part of nature. He sees himself against nature. He looks at the vastness of the universe and it looks hostile.

John Shelby Spong

I have often noticed that ancestors never boast of the descendants who boast of ancestors. I would rather start a family than finish one. Blood will tell, but often it tells too much.

Don Marquis

I shall cheerfully bear the reproach of having descended below the dignity of history if I can succeed in placing before the English of the nineteenth century a true picture of the life of their ancestors.

Pete Seeger
Some people are your relatives but others are your ancestors, and you choose the ones you want to have as ancestors. You create yourself out of those values.

Ralph Ellison
Sweden is the home of my ancestors, and I have reserved a special place in my heart for Sweden.

Carl D. Anderson
The book begins and ends with the visits to give the impression of a tunnel into their ancestors and family history. I believe in going backwards into the past - I felt I was digging a tunnel back to the past.

The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who... looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space... on the infinite highway of the air.

Wilbur Wright

The people of western Missouri are, in some respects, very peculiar. We will take Jackson county where I was born for instance. In that section the people seemed to be born fighters, the instinct being inherited from a long line of ancestors.

Cole Younger
The people who have recently come to this country to work and better their lives should be given the same opportunities that our parents, grandparents, and ancestors were given.

Jose Serrano

There is no escape - we pay for the violence of our ancestors.

There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his.

Helen Keller
There is nothing glorious about what our ancestors call history. It is simply a succession of mistakes, intolerances and violations.

Claude Vorilhon
To me it seems that the warm blooded dinosaurs replaced advanced mammal ancestors that were warm blooded, also.

Robert T. Bakker
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 that arrogant oligarchy who merely happen to be walking around.

Gilbert K. Chesterton

We are a continuum. Just as we reach back to our ancestors for our fundamental values, so we, as guardians of that legacy, must reach ahead to our children and their children. And we do so with a sense of sacredness in that reaching.

Paul Tsongas
We forget that the soul has its own ancestors.

James Hillman
We must create the Georgia that our ancestors dreamed of, the Georgia that we dream of.

Mikhail Saakashvili
We must wake up to the insane reality of our time. We are all irresponsible, unless we demand from the responsible decision makers that modern armaments must no longer be made available to people whose former battle axes and swords our ancestors condemned.

Thor Heyerdahl
We pay for the mistakes of our ancestors, and it seems only

fair that they should leave us the money to pay with.
