~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

We peruse one ideal, that of bringing people together in peace, irrespective of race, religion and political convictions, for the benefit of mankind.

~~~~~~~

We proceed out of history into history again.

~~~~~~~

We used to root for the Indians against the cavalry, because we didn’t think it was fair in the history books that when the cavalry won it was a great victory, and when the Indians won it was a massacre.

~~~~~~~

We will hereafter believe less history than ever, now that we have seen how it is made.

~~~~~~~

We would like to live as we once lived, but history will not permit it.

~~~~~~~

We, therefore, here in Britain stand shoulder to shoulder with our American friends in this hour of tragedy, and we, like them, will not rest until this evil is driven from our world.

~~~~~~~

What experience and history teaches us is that people and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it.
