History Why bother?
History is the lie commonly agreed upon. (Voltaire)
History is only a confused heap of facts. (G.K. Chesterton)
If a man could say nothing against a character but what he can prove, history could not be written. (Samuel Johnson)
The past is useless. That explains why it is past. (Wright Morris)
History is an argument without end. (Peter Geyl)
What experience and history teach is this‐that people and governments never have learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it. (G. W. F. Hegel)
History is a people's memory, and without memory man is demoted to the lower animals. (Malcolm X)
History is the witness that testiﬁes to the passing of time; it illuminates reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life, and brings us tidings of antiquity. (Cicero)
The function of the historian is neither to love the past nor to emancipate himself from the past, but to master and understand it as the key to the understanding of the present. (E. H. Carr)
The study of history is the best medicine for a sick mind; for in history you have a record of the inﬁnite variety of human experience plainly set out for all to see; and in that record you can ﬁnd yourself and your country both examples and warnings; ﬁne things to take as models, base things rotten through and through, to avoid. (Livy)
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. (Santayana)
A nation which does not know what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today, nor what it is trying to do. (Woodrow Wilson)
If you do not like the past, change it. (William L. Burton)
