If you don’t know by now, I love history! Two of my favorite quotes about history are as follows:
To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to always be a child. For what is the worth of human life,
unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?
--- Cicero 107 BC
The disadvantage of men and women not knowing the past is that they do not know the present. History is a hill or a high point of vantage, from which alone men and women see the town in which they live or the age in which they are living. – CK Chesterton
I know that we must live in the present and plan for the future. But understanding the past is key to knowing how we got where we are. It’s so very important.
