Famous quotes containing the word history:
“Three million of such stones would be needed before the work was done. Three million stones of an average weight of 5,000 pounds, every stone cut precisely to fit into its destined place in the great pyramid. From the quarries they pulled the stones across the desert to the banks of the Nile. Never in the history of the world had so great a task been performed. Their faith gave them strength, and their joy gave them song.”
—William Faulkner (18971962)
“The history of all previous societies has been the history of class struggles.”
—Karl Marx (18181883)
“Perhaps universal history is the history of the diverse intonation of some metaphors.”
—Jorge Luis Borges (18991986)
