We will never learn from the past if we've forgotten it. Now there's been a dramatic decline in the number of college students studying history.
Learning about history is an antidote to the hubris of the present, the idea that everything in our lives is the ultimate.
Remembering Samuel Eliot Morrison
NO, SAY THREE AMERICAN HISTORIANS. BUT THE PATIENT IS AILING AND THEY THINK THEY KNOW WHY AND WHAT TO PRESCRIBE.
