Best Genealogy Sayings By Jorge Luis Borges: Hell had become, over the years, a wearisome speculation. Even its proselytizers have neglected it, Hell had become, over the years, a wearisome speculation. Even its proselytizers have neglected it, abandoning the poor, but serviceable, human allusion which the ecclesiastic fires of the Holy Office once had in this world: a temporal torment, of course, but one that was not unworthy, within its terrestrial limitations, of being a metaphor for the immortal, for the perfect pain without destruction that the objects of divine wrath will forever endure.

Best Genealogy Sayings By Timothy Beal: We're used to picturing the genealogy of a text like a family tree: one original We're used to picturing the genealogy of a text like a family tree: one original at the base ascending like a single trunk, with copies branching off it, and copies of copies branching off them. And so on throughout the generations. We imagine an original from which all the generations of diversity spring as scribes make revisions and introduce copying errors. But the reverse seems to be the case when it comes to the origins of the Bible: the further you go back in its literary history, the less uniformity there is. Scriptural traditions are rooted, quite literally, in diversity. — Timothy Beal

Best Genealogy Sayings By Jean Sevillia: The crisis of history in France, is a crisis of social bond, a crisis of The crisis of history in France, is a crisis of social bond, a crisis of citizenship. A citizen is the heir of a past more or less mythified, but he makes his own, whatever his personal genealogy. Today, under the pretext that the country has undergone considerable changes, some would like to transform the past in order to adopt it to the new face of France. Nothing, however, will make the past anything other than what it was. To pretend to change history is a totalitarian project: One who has control of the past has control over the future, one who has control over the present has control over the past, as George Orwell wrote in 1984. — Jean Sevillia
Best Genealogy Sayings By Joseph Campbell: Our actual ultimate root is in our humanity, not in our personal genealogy. Our actual ultimate root is in our humanity, not in our personal genealogy. — Joseph Campbell

Best Genealogy Sayings By Charlotte Bronte: I must not forget that these coarsely-clad little peasants are of flesh and blood as I must not forget that these coarsely-clad little peasants are of flesh and blood as good as the scions of the gentlest genealogy; and that the germs of native excellence, refinement, intelligence, kind feeling, are as likely to exist in their hearts as in those of the best born. My duty will be to develop these germs: surely I shall find some happiness in discharging that office. — Charlotte Bronte
