Mental Snacktime – Learning from Past

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” – Marcus Garvey

"We learn from history that we learn nothing from history." – George Bernard Shaw

"Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it." – Winston Churchill

"In history, a great volume is unrolled for our instruction, drawing the materials of future wisdom from the past errors and infirmities of mankind." – Edmund Burke

"History is for human self-knowledge ... the only clue to what man can do is what man has done. The value of history, then, is that it teaches us what man has done and thus what man is." – R. G. Collingwood

"Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times. This arises from the fact that they are produced by men who ever have been, and ever shall be, animated by the same passions, and thus they necessarily have the same results." – Machiavelli

"History cannot give us a program for the future, but it can give us a fuller understanding of ourselves, and of our common humanity, so that we can better face the future." – Robert Penn Warren
