Examples of civilizations in a Sentence

  1. Iosif Lazaridis:

    We may be removing some of the mystique surrounding these people by showing that they weren't that different from the people that came before or after them, the Minoans and Mycenaeans didn't have any special ancestry: they were made of the same basic ‘stuff’ as other people from Europe and the Middle East. So we can't answer the question of why these civilizations flourished thousands of years ago, but we can at least cast some light on who they were and where they came from.

  2. Taleb Rifai:

    But it's a fantastically rich country, when it comes to cultural heritage, one of the richest civilizations mankind has ever seen.

  3. Felix Chami:

    I feel that these architectural remains are from the greatest of the African civilizations, when you cross the beaches and the channel to Kilwa Kisiwani you see millions of pieces of pottery. Then when you get to the island itself, you actually see the wonders of civilization.

  4. Alexander Fraser Tyler, Cycle of Democracy (1770):

    A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over lousy fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average of the world's great civilizations before they decline has been 200 years. These nations have progressed in this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to Complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependency; from dependency back again to bondage.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    The most interesting aspect of Life is that it always goes on - either with or without you. Life also moves pretty fast, regardless of whether you take nothing away or you put nothing back. The truth remains that empires collapse and civilizations disappear, and yet Life goes on. La Vie Continue!
