If I want to grow and blossom as any tree would, I have to start by knowing my roots and understand how I came to be the tree I am. Learn your ancestry. ~ Jeffrey G. Duarte
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Jeffrey G. Duarte
It's just as hard for man to break the habit of thinking of himself as central to the species as it was to break the habit of thinking of himself as central to the universe. He sees himself quite unconsciously as the main line of evolution, with a female satellite revolving around him as the moon revolves around the earth. This not only causes him to overlook valuable clues to our ancestry, but sometimes leads him into making statements that are arrant and demonstrable nonsense. ~ Elaine Morgan
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Elaine Morgan
My forefathers didn't come over on the Mayflower, but they met the boat. ~ Will Rogers
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Will Rogers
There is no more fascinating subject in which a person may become occupied than an examination into the history of his ancestry. ~ Archibald F. Bennett
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Archibald F. Bennett
She wakes up all at once, all over, smooth as a cat. Probably there's cat in her ancestry someplace. Those old noble French families ... " "No telling, with the French. Inventive people. ~ Joanna Bourne
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Joanna Bourne
Quite recently the human descent theory has been stigmatized as the 'gorilla theory of human ancestry.' All this despite the fact that Darwin himself, in the days when not a single bit of evidence regarding the fossil ancestors of man was recognized, distinctly stated that none of the known anthropoid apes, much less any of the known monkeys, should be considered in any way as ancestral to the human stock. ~ Henry Fairfield Osborn
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Henry Fairfield Osborn
The foolish families worry over blood. I care nothing for purity of family or ancestry. That is a vain thing. I care only for strength. What a man can do to other men, women. ~ Pierce Brown
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Pierce Brown
Pedigree and ancestry and what we ourselves have not achieved, I scarcely recognize as our own. ~ Ovid
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Ovid
... P doth protest to much. It would be one thing if P were merely silent about Midian. But P is hostile to Midian. Its author tells a story of a complete massacre of the Midianites. He wants no Midianites around. And he especially wants no Midianite women around. This author buried the Moses-Midian connection. We can know why he did this. Practically all critical scholars ascribe this Priestly work to the established priesthood at Jerusalem. For most of the biblical period, that priesthood traced its ancestry to Aaron, the first high priest. It was a priesthood of Levites, but not the same Levites who gave us the E text. Some, including me, ascribe the E text to Levites who traced their ancestry to Moses. These two Levite priestly houses, the Aaronids and the Mushites, were engaged in struggles for leadership and in polemic against each other. The E (Mushite) source took pains, as we have seen to connect Moses' Midianite family back to Abraham. That is understandable. E was justifying the Mushite Levites' line in Israel's history. And it is equally understandable why their opponents, the Aaronids, cast aspersions on any Midianite background. That put a cloud over any Levites, or any text, that claimed a Midianite genealogy. We all could easily think of parallel examples in politics and religion in history and today. ~ Richard Elliott Friedman
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Richard Elliott Friedman
Keep your hands off me. She spoke viciously, through her teeth, and he caught a glimpse of her deVere ancestry.
She was a virago in tiny, fragile, fairy form. ~ Christina Brooke
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Christina Brooke
do other animals have human emotions? Yes, they do. Do humans have animal emotions? Yes; they're largely the same. Fear, aggression, well-being, anxiety, and pleasure are the emotions of shared brain structures and shared chemistries, originated in shared ancestry. ~ Carl Safina
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Carl Safina
Knowing that my ancestry had all been quite wealthy and owned their own businesses probably left me with the ambition to replicate what they'd done. ~ John Caudwell
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by John Caudwell
Family is not just about who you appear to belong to, or what it says on your birth certificate, or who you look like, or even what they'd find if they studied your DNA. Family is found anywhere you are loved and cared for. That might mean friends or foster parents, a group or even a charity. What matters far more - so much more than chemistry or ancestry - is that precious bond, that reassurance that they won't let you down. ~ Marina Chapman
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Marina Chapman
I've never felt grounded because of my ancestry or my gender. I think until women get away from that they're not going to be great writers. ~ Patti Smith
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Patti Smith
Sire, I am my own Rudolph of Hapsburg. ~ Napoleon Bonaparte
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
Men who pride themselves on their ancestry are like the potato plant, the most part of which is under ground. ~ William Tyler
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by William Tyler
At a bit over two meters tall, she was only slightly above average height for a Martian male, but thanks in part to her Polynesian ancestry, she weighed in at over a hundred kilos at one g. None of it was fat, but her muscles seemed to get bigger every time she even walked through a weight room. As a marine, she trained all the time. ~ James S.A. Corey
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by James S.A. Corey
And yet Xiao Li always spoke of her mother as if her image were mounted in a red-and-gold picture frame resting on a shrine in the corner of a tidy house, to be venerated and pleased at all times, like a deceased ancestor ever-present and scrutinizing her progeny. ~ Victor Robert Lee
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Victor Robert Lee
DNA ties us all together; we share ancestry with barracuda and bacteria and mushrooms, if you go far enough back. ~ Spencer Wells
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Spencer Wells
Pedigrees seldom improve by age; the grandson is too often a weak infringement on the grandsire's parent. ~ Josh Billings
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Josh Billings
In 1759, the great lexicographer Dr Samuel Johnson wrote: 'Advertisements are now so numerous they are very negligently perused.' An opinion many people express to this day, without realizing its centuries-old ancestry. ~ Winston Fletcher
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Winston Fletcher
Just like our story, the original Christmas tales were stories of searching, not so much for the lost, as for the familiar. Mary and Joseph sought in Bethlehem- the home of their familial ancestry- a place to start their own family; the three kings from the East journeyed beneath the sentinel star to find the King of Kings; and the shepherds sought a child in a place most familiar to them: a manger. ~ Richard Paul Evans
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Richard Paul Evans
The theater, when it is potent enough to deserve its ancestry, is always dangerous; that is why it is instinctively feared by people who do not want change, but only preservation of the status quo. ~ Hallie Flanagan
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Hallie Flanagan
Put down the pen someone else gave you. No one ever drafted a life worth living on borrowed ink. Get to San Francisco. Get to San Francisco in defiance of your geography, your ancestry and the lonely change rattling sad excuses in your pocket. Fuel up on pie and diner coffee and mystic visions and the freedom of not knowing what's coming next except that you're burning the road to outrun it. ~ Jack Kerouac
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Jack Kerouac
Back in the eighth century bc two kingdoms, Israel and Judah, occupied roughly the territory of modern Israel. The two kingdoms fought each other, but their inhabitants shared a religion and a common ancestry, because all of them belonged to one of twelve tribes descended from the twelve sons of Jacob. The kingdom of Israel was the older of the two and was originally the location of the religion's holy sites. When that kingdom was invaded by the Assyrians in the eighth century bc, though, tens of thousands of its inhabitants were carried off to northern Iraq. The kingdom of Judah was spared; its inhabitants came to be called Judeans, and then Jews. They, too, were taken into exile in Babylon, and came back with new ideas and changed traditions. As for the exiles from Israel, they were never heard of again, and came to be called the Ten Lost Tribes. But not all the ten tribes were truly lost, say the Samaritans. Some were deported by the Assyrians, yes, but others remained. ~ Gerard Russell
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Gerard Russell
Descendants of New England pioneers are proud of their ancestry and glad to proclaim the fact that so far as the United States are concerned, New England is in deed the cradle of religious liberty. ~ Paul Harris
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Paul Harris
It is indeed a striking proof of the essential soundness of the tradition that with which all these thousands of copies, tracing their ancestry back to so many different parts of the earth and to conditions of such diverse kinds, the variations of text are so entirely questions of detail, not of essential substance. ~ Frederic G. Kenyon
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Frederic G. Kenyon
A nation ashamed of it's ancestry will be despised by it's posterity. ~ Charles B. Galloway
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Charles B. Galloway
I discovered that there is Indian blood in my ancestry on my father's side - a fact that had not been talked about in my family. No wonder I've often been cast in exotic roles - Indian princesses, Russian revolutionaries, Algerians, Gypsies and Greeks. ~ Diana Quick
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Diana Quick
The MSS uses two main themes in recruiting foreign nationals of Chinese ancestry. First, it appeals to their perceived obligation to help the land of their heritage, thereby exploiting sentimental feelings of ethnic pride. Second, it implies that family members still in the PRC will receive unfavorable treatment unless the subjects cooperate. The latter approach is quite stressful for the subjects and a strong motivational factor in favor of compliance. ~ Nicholas Eftimiades
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Nicholas Eftimiades
Art photography, although long since legitimized by all the conventional discourses of fine art, seems destined perpetually to recapitulate all the rituals of the arriviste. Inasmuch as one of those rituals consists of the establishment of suitable ancestry, a search for distinguished bloodlines, it inevitably happens that photographic history and criticism are more concern with notions of tradition and continuity than with those of rupture and change. ~ Abigail Solomon-Godeau
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Abigail Solomon-Godeau
Her parents could have named her Aria, or Harmonia, or Tessitura, or a hundred other clever names that would have alluded to her ancestry. But they weren't for her, these names that roll or sparkle or play or simply proclaim, I am normal!
No, it was Sing. A name and a command. ~ Adi Rule
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Adi Rule
When I look at the clues that indicate the nature of Jesus – born in a barn, questionable parents, spotty ancestry, common name, misdirected announcement, unattractive looks, reared in a bad neighborhood, owning nothing, surrounding himself with unattractive co-workers, and dying a shameful death – I find his whole approach unable to fit into the methods that automatically come to mind when I think about "winning the world." His whole approach could easily be described as nonthreatening or nonmanipulative. He seemed to lead with weakness in each step of life. He had nothing in the world and everything in God and the Spirit. ~ Gayle D. Erwin
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Gayle D. Erwin
All modern humans are related to what scientists call "Mitochondrial Eve." This refers to our common matrilineal ancestor. She lived approximately 200,000 years ago and depending on how you estimate the length of a generation, we are only 5,000 to 10,000 generations from one another. To put it another way, each of us is a cousin of one another at most 10,000 times removed. And yes, Mitochondrial Eve lived in Africa, so, in a very real way, we are all Africans. ~ Desmond Tutu
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Desmond Tutu
Women are outperforming men in almost every sphere of life in our society and the women of East Indian ancestry are no exception to this rule. They have broken the cultural mould. ~ Kamla Persad-Bissessar
Wahnon Ancestry quotes by Kamla Persad-Bissessar
Both the ancestry and posterity of Grief go further than the ancestry and posterity of Joy. ~ Herman Melville
