Famous quotes with In ancient times

  • I was born in ancient times, at the end of the world, in a patriarchal Catholic and conservative family. No wonder that by age five I was a raging feminist - although the term had not reached Chile yet, so nobody knew what the heck was wrong with me.
    Isabel Allende

Had that been possible, these calamities would in all probability have turned me to stone
    Anna Comnena
  • It is no accident that, in ancient times many peoples used priestesses (think, for example, of the Greek Sibyls) to enter into relationship with the will of the gods.
