Culture Quotations

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.

Billy Joel

Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbour is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions.
Paulo Coelho
