Will Durant Quotes.

1. "Nothing is impossible to gods and authors."
- Quote by Will Durant

2. "It is a mistake to think that the past is dead. Nothing that has ever happened is quite without influence at this moment. The present is merely the past rolled up and concentrated in this second of time. You, too, are your past; often your face is your autobiography; you are what you are because of what you have been; because of your heredity stretching back into forgotten generations; because of every element of environment that has affected you, every man or woman that has met you, every book that you have read, every experience that you have had; all these are accumulated in your memory, your body, your character, your soul. So with a city, a country, and a race; it is its past, and cannot be understood without it."
- Quote by Will Durant

3. "إن الوضع الدولي كله فاسد . هكذا كان , وهكذا سيظل .. ولا أجد سببا يدعو إلى التغير"
- Quote by Will Durant

4. "There is no greater drama in human record than the sight of a few Christians, scorned or oppressed by a succession of emperors, bearing all trials with a fierce tenacity, multiplying quietly, building order while their enemies generated chaos, fighting the sword with the word, brutality with hope, and at last defeating the strongest state that history has known. Caesar and Christ had met in the arena, and Christ had won."
- Quote by Will Durant

5. "Magic begins in superstition, and ends in science. ... At every step the history of civilization teaches us how slight and superficial a structure civilization is, and how precariously it is poised upon the apex of a never-extinct volcano of poor and oppressed barbarism, superstition and ignorance. Modernity is a cap superimposed upon the Middle Ages, which always remain."
- Quote by Will Durant

7. "Peace is war by other means."

8. "Civilization exists by geologic consent, subject to change without notice."
- Quote by Will Durant

9. "India was the motherland of our race and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages. India was the mother of our philosophy, of much of our mathematics, of the ideals embodied in Christianity... of self-government and democracy. In many ways, Mother India is the mother of us all."
- Quote by Will Durant

10. "We must steel ourselves against utopias and be content with a slightly better state."
