Quotes History . . . illuminates reality, vitalizes, memory, provides guidance in daily life, and brings us tidings of antiquity (Cicero) The past is useless. That explains why it is past. (Wright Morris) You have reckoned that history ought to judge the past and to instruct the contemporary world as to the future. The present attempt does not yield to that high office. It will merely tell how it really was. (Leopold von Ranke) What experience and history teach us is this—that people and governments never have learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it. (G. W. F. Hegel) The historian does simply not come in to replenish the gaps of memory. He constantly challenges even those memories that have survived intact. (Yosef Yerushamimi)
