History: 20 Centuries AD

History How important is it?


Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
George Santayana
History is more or less bunk. Henry Ford
When Americans say something is history,
they mean it is no longer relevant.
When Europeans say the same thing,
they usually mean the opposite. Javier Solana
A historian who would convey the truth must lie.
Often he must enlarge the truth by diameters,
otherwise his reader would not be able to see it. Mark Twain
