Ariel Durant (; 10 May 1898 – 25 October 1981) was a Russian-born American researcher and writer and the coauthor of The Story of Civilization with her husband Will Durant.

Education is the transmission of civilization.

A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within.

It is good a philosopher should remind himself, now and then, that he is a particle pontificating on infinity.

The conservative who resists change is as valuable as the radical who proposes it.
