Famous quotes containing the word history:

    There is no history of how bad became better.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    What is most interesting and valuable in it, however, is not the materials for the history of Pontiac, or Braddock, or the Northwest, which it furnishes; not the annals of the country, but the natural facts, or perennials, which are ever without date. When out of history the truth shall be extracted, it will have shed its dates like withered leaves.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The history of the Victorian Age will never be written: we know too much about it.
    Lytton Strachey (1880–1932)
