Quotes of Thor Heyerdahl

Норвежский путешественник.

  • ⋅A civilized nation can have no enemies, and one cannot draw a line across a map, a line that doesn't even exist in nature and say that the ugly enemy lives on the one side, and good friends live on the other. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅But if we begin thinking about the world being over 100 million years old, then it's absolutely by chance that you and I are sitting here alive today, while all the others are dead or have never been born. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅Circumstances cause us to act the way we do. We should always bear this in mind before judging the actions of others. I realized this from the start during World War II. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅Civilization grew in the beginning from the minute that we had communication - particularly communication by sea that enabled people to get inspiration and ideas from each other and to exchange basic raw materials. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅For every minute, the future is becoming the past. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅I also believe that when one dies, one may wake up to the reality that proves that time does not exist. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • Реклама:
  • ⋅I don't believe in war as a solution to any kind of conflict, nor do I believe in heroism on the battlefield because I have never seen any. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅I have never been able to grasp the meaning of time. I don't believe it exists. I've felt this again and again, when alone and out in nature. On such occasions, time does not exist. Nor does the future exist. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅I was in uniform for four years, and I know that heroism doesn't occur from taking orders, but rather from people who through their own willpower and strength are willing to sacrifice their lives for an idea. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅In my experience, it is rarer to find a really happy person in a circle of millionaires than among vagabonds. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅It is also rarer to find happiness in a man surrounded by the miracles of technology than among people living in the desert of the jungle and who by the standards set by our society would be considered destitute and out of touch. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅One learns more from listening than speaking.And both the wind and the people who continue to live close to nature still have much to tell us which we cannot hear within university walls. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅Progress is man's ability to complicate simplicity. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅Surrounded by military airplanes and warships from the world's most civilized and developed nations, we have been denied permission by friendly governments, for reasons of security, to land anywhere, but in the tiny, and still neutral, Republic of Djibouti. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅Therefore, I feel convinced that any political picture can be changed to suit the needs of the powers that be. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅Those who have experienced the most, have suffered so much that they have ceased to hate. Hate is more for those with a slightly guilty conscience, and who by chewing on old hate in times of peace wish to demonstrate how great they were during the war. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅We have always been taught that navigation is the result of civilization, but modern archeology has demonstrated very clearly that this is not so. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅We must wake up to the insane reality of our time. We are all irresponsible, unless we demand from the responsible decision makers that modern armaments must no longer be made available to people whose former battle axes and swords our ancestors condemned. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅Borders? I did not see a single one. True, I heard they are in the minds of some people. /Thor Heyerdahl
  • ⋅...arranging the journey was so difficult. Getting home again was much easier. /Thor Heyerdahl
