Fulmer1Kateland FulmerProfessor Jackson24 August 2020What Is History?There were many quotes that were very interesting to me but the one I chose was one that really stuck out to me the most. Marcus Tullius Cicero was a roman statesman and a lawyer. He came from Italy and was born a very long time ago. He states, "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."He believes that history sees the past as a steppingstone. He believes the past history guides us into being better people today. I love this quote very much because it is used more than in just history but in our daily lives. We as people use the past as motivation and as examples of bad decisions. We learn and move on, Just like history. Historyguide.org, .“Ancient Rome.” Ducksters Educational Site, .
