“God cannot alter the past, but historians can.”

Samuel Butler

“A generation which ignores history has no past and no future.”

Robert Heinlein

“If you don’t know history, then you don’t know anything. You are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree. ”

Michael Crichton

“We’ll be remembered more for what we destroy than what we create.”

Chuck Palahniuk

“Study the past if you would define the future.”

Confucius

“History is always written by the winners. When two cultures clash, the loser is obliterated, and the winner writes the history books-books which glorify their own cause and disparage the conquered foe. As Napoleon once said, ‘What is history, but a fable agreed upon?”

Dan Brown
