quote by Michio Kaku

If you could meet your grandkids as elderly citizens in the year 2100 … you would view them as being, basically, Greek gods… that's where we're headed.

Contentment Greek God quotations

Greek god quote To trust God in the light is nothing, but to trust him in the dark, that is fait
To trust God in the light is nothing, but to trust him in the dark, that is faith.

A God in the hand is worth two in the bush.

We look at the ancient Greeks with their gods on a mountain top throwing lightning bolts and say, 'Those ancient Greeks. They were so silly. So primitive and naive. Not like our religions. We have burning bushes talking to people and guys walking on water. We're ...sophisticated.'

Greek god quote God sometimes removes people from your life to protect you. Don't run after them
God sometimes removes people from your life to protect you. Don't run after them.

The Greeks bequeathed to us one of the most beautiful words in our language--the word 'enthusiasm'--en theos--a god within. The grandeur of human actions is measured by the inspiration from which they spring. Happy is he who bears a god within, and who obeys it.

For me Esoteric Hitlerism is being possessed by the archetypes of the collective unconscious which the Greeks used to call gods.


If you believe, as the Greeks did, that man is at the mercy of the gods, then you write tragedy. The end is inevitable from the beginning. But if you believe that man can solve his own problems and is at nobody's mercy, then you will probably write melodrama.

Greek god quote Don't ask God to guide your footsteps if you're not willing to move your feet.
Don't ask God to guide your footsteps if you're not willing to move your feet.

We are living in what the Greeks called the kairos - the right moment - for a 'metamorphosis of the gods', of the fundamental principles and symbols. This peculiarity of our time, which is certainly not of our conscious choosing, is the expression of the unconscious man within us who is changing.

The Serbs have only two friends, God and the Greeks.

The Greeks, it will be recalled, regarded Eros, the god of love, as the eldest of the gods; but also as the youngest, born fresh and dewy-eyed in every living heart.

What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked god for yesterday.

Rachel: You're a half-blood, too? Annabeth: Shhh! Just announce it to the world, how about? Rachel: Okay. Hey, everybody! These two aren't human! They're half Greek god!...They don't seem to care.


What good are Greek, commentaries, insight, gift, and all the rest, if there is no heart for Christ?

Wonderful, Annabeth thought. Her own mother, the most levelheaded Olympian, was reduced to a raving, vicious scatterbrain in a subway station. And, of all the gods who might help them, the only ones not affected by the Greek-Roman schism seemed to be Aphrodite, Nemesis and Dionysus. Love, revenge, wine. Very helpful.

Greek god quote God changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls and coal into diamon
God changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls and coal into diamonds using time and pressure. He's working on you too.

I sometimes wonder if the hand is not more sensitive to the beauties of sculpture than the eye. I should think the wonderful rhythmical flow of lines and curves could be more subtly felt than seen. Be this as it may, I know that I can feel the heart-throbs of the ancient Greeks in their marble gods and goddesses.

...it seemed to me I was living in an insane asylum of my own making. I wnt about with all these fantastic figures: centaurs, nymphs, satyrs, gods and goddesses, as though they were patients and I was analyzing them. I read a Greek or Negro myth as if a lunatic were telling me his anamnesis.

Something has got to hold it together. I'm saying my prayers to Elmer, the Greek god of glue.

Greek god quote Nothing happens by accident. God is preparing you for great things.
Nothing happens by accident. God is preparing you for great things.

If there were a god of New York, it would be the Greek's Hermes, the Roman's Mercury. He embodies New York qualities: the quick exchange, the fastness of language and style, craftiness, the mixing of people and crossing of borders, imagination.

Every human being has within him an ideal man, just as every piece of marble contains in a rough state a statue as beautiful as the one that Praxiteles the Greek made of the god Apollo.

I to die, and you to live. Which is better God only knows.

Greek god quote David didn't need to know Goliath's strength because he already knew God's.
David didn't need to know Goliath's strength because he already knew God's.

To the Greeks, the supreme function of music was to "praise the gods and educate the youth". In Egypt... Initiatory music was heard only in Temple rites because it carried the vibratory rhythms of other worlds and of a life beyond the mortal.

It did remind me of something out of Greek mythology - the richest king who gets everything he wants, but ultimately his family has a curse on it from the Gods.


Beauty is no local deity, like the Greek and Roman gods, but omnipresent.

Greek god quote Prayer is when you talk to god, meditation is when god talks to you.
Prayer is when you talk to god, meditation is when god talks to you.

The sense of this word among the Greeks affords the noblest definition of it;

I earned the name from the Greek god Zelos who is the god of rivalry.

Envy is what makes you, when an acquaintance is lustily telling you that she's dating a Greek god of a guy, ask, 'Which one, Hades?'

Enthusiasm is not an emotional state.

The ancient Greeks did not have to wrestle with the philosophical problem of the existence of evil. They did not claim their gods were good, just magnificent.

Greek god quote Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visi
Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this is Nature he's destroying is this God he's worshiping.

Artists, like the Greek gods, are only revealed to one another.

Experts in ancient Greek culture say that people back then didn't see their thoughts as belonging to them. When ancient Greeks had a thought, it occurred to them as a god or goddess giving an order. Apollo was telling them to be brave. Athena was telling them to fall in love. Now people hear a commercial for sour cream potato chips and rush out to buy, but now they call this free will. At least the ancient Greeks were being honest.

Don't worry about your physical shortcomings.

I am no Greek god. Don't get too much sleep and don 't tell anybody your troubles. Appearances count: Get a sun lamp to keep you looking as though you have just come back from somewhere expensive: maintain an elegant address even if you have to live in the attic. Never nickel when short of cash. Borrow big, but always repay promptly.

Greek god quote Religious wars are basically people killing each other over who has the better i
Religious wars are basically people killing each other over who has the better imaginary friend.

The sense of this word among the Greeks affords the noblest definition of it;

enthusiasm signifies God in us.

No one says they can't identify with the tales of the Greek gods and goddesses because they don't live on Mt. Olympus.

All the superhero stuff is Greek myths and Greek gods, wearing tights and capes.

That's what they are. That's what I gravitate towards.

I see murky visions of other gods and rival magic.

" That REALLY didn't sound good. "What do you mean?" I asked. "what OTHER GODS?" "I don't know, Sadie. But Egypt has always faced challenges from outside –– magicians from elsewhere, even gods from elsewhere. Just be vigilant." ~Ruby & Sadie Kane about...? Possibly Greeks?

We humans are in charge of life on Earth;

we're like the capricious gods of old Greek myths, playing with life - [with] not a great deal of wisdom.
