A land without ruins is a land without memories – a land without momories is a land without history. ~ ` ~ Abram Joseph Ryan There is nothing as dear as the sight of ruins. ~ ` ~ Joseph Brodsky The ruins proclaim the building was beautiful ~ ` ~ Mohsin Hamid Old places have soul. ~ ` ~ Sarah Anderson Ruins are not empty. They are sacred places full of precence… ~ ` ~ John O’ Donohue The life & passion of a person leaves an imprint on the eather of a place… ~ ` ~ John O’ Donohue Where there is ruin there is hope for a tressure ~ ` ~ Rumi What’s old collapses, times change, And new life blossoms in the ruins. … ~ ` ~ Friedrich Schiller Ruin is when man-made has become part of nature. … ~ ` ~ Marco Casagrande The broken eggshell of a civilization which time has hatched & devoured ~ ` ~ Julia Ward Howe A ruin should always be protected but never repaired- thus may we witness full the lingering legasies of the past ~ ` ~ Walter scott Some ruins of ancient times are much more beautiful than the best buildings of modern eras! ~ ` ~ Mehmet Murat Ildan
