Xenophanes Quotes



    • Men create the gods in their own image.
    • Mortals deem that the gods are begotten as they are, and have clothes like theirs, and voice and form.
    • The Ethiops say that their gods are flat-nosed and black, While the Thracians say that theirs have blue eyes and red hair. Yet if cattle or horses or lions had hands and could draw, And could sculpture like men, then the horses would draw their gods Like horses, and cattle like cattle; and each they would shape Bodies of gods in the likeness, each kind, of their own.
