“School days are the unhappiest in the whole span of human existence. They are full of dull, unintelligible tasks, new and unpleasant ordinances, with brutal violations of common sense and common decency.”
The past is never dead. It's not even the past
HISTORY, n. An account mostly false, of events mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers mostly knaves, and soldiers mostly fools.
David C. McCullough
History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan
Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but they are not entitled to their own facts.
