Assyrian Quotes

I thought it would be nice to share our Assyrian-affiliated quotes, here are some of mine:

?The term Assyrian is one single unity. The approach of this oneness of all Assyrians regardless of their religious adherence, is through the avenue of blood, and through the majesty of common memories. Religion is a faith acquired and is changeable. Nationality is one's flesh and blood; it is his total nature. Even death cannot undo this.?
- Dr. David Barsum Perley

?She lusted after the Assyrians, governors and officials, the ones near, magnificently dressed, horsemen riding on horses, all of them desirable young men.?
- Ezekiel 23:12

?We are not a band of homeless people...We are a nation...They were Assyrians. This was a Nation, and they would retain a status of a nation, even on the move. A nation is what it makes of itself. If it wants to be a nation, then it can remain as a nation even if no other nation recognizes its existence. Their enemies had realized their national potential long before the Assyrians themselves. The enemy was not afraid of good farmers, good parents, good church-going parishioners...the enemy was afraid of Assyrians wrapped in nationhood.?
- Mount Semele, Ivan Kakovitch

?Awake, son of Assyria,
Awake and see the world how enlightened.
...The chance is fleeing from us
And time is running out
Awake son of Assyria, Awake!
In vengeance you will take refuge.
Rise up and band together to strengthen.
And if one does not awake we have lost our chance
Without a purpose, misfortune will befall our land‬?
- Naum Faiq

?Thy shepherds slumber, O king of Assyria; thy nobles lie still; thy people are scattered upon the mountains, and no man gathereth them?
- Nahum 3:18

?Ashur lived at the city of Nineve; and named his subjects Assyrians, who became the most fortunate nation, beyond others?
- Flavius Josephus
