~~~~~~~

Why should we honour those that die upon the field of battle? A man may show as reckless a courage in entering into the abyss of himself.

~~~~~~~

With memory set smarting like a reopened wound, a man’s past is not simply a dead history, an outworn preparation of the present: it is not a repented error shaken loose from the life: it is a still quivering part of himself, bringing shudders and bitter flavors and the tinglings of a merited shame.

~~~~~~~

We are a rebellious nation. Our whole history is treason; our blood was attained before we were born; our creeds were infidelity to the mother church; our constitution treason to our fatherland.

~~~~~~~

We are all hostages, and we are all terrorists. This circuit has replaced that other one of masters and slaves, the dominating and the dominated, the exploiters and the exploited. It is worse than the one it replaces, but at least it liberates us from liberal nostalgia and the ruses of history.

~~~~~~~

We are never completely contemporaneous with our present. History advances in disguise; it appears on stage wearing a mask of the preceding scene, and we tend to lose the meaning of the play.

~~~~~~~

We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.

~~~~~~~

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.

To know the truth of history is to realize its ultimate myth and its inevitable ambiguity.- Roy P. Basler

~~~~~~~

To many of the modern generations, history, like God, is dead.

~~~~~~~

To study history is to study literature.

~~~~~~~

To the extent that the judicial profession becomes the daily routine of deciding cases on the most secure precedents and the narrowest grounds available, the judicial mind atrophies and its perspective shrinks.

~~~~~~~

To wear your heart on your sleeve isn’t a very good plan; you should wear it inside, where it functions best.

~~~~~~~

Too many historical writers are the votaries of cults, which, by definition are dedicated to whitewashing warts and hanging halos.

~~~~~~~

Too many so-called historians are really ”hysterians”; their thinking is more visceral than cerebral. When their duties as citizens clash with their responsibilities as scholars, Clio frequently takes a back seat.

~~~~~~~

Truth comes to us from the past, as gold is washed down from the mountains of Sierra Nevada, in minute but precious particles, and intermixed with infinite alloy, the debris of the centuries.

~~~~~~~

Truth is liable to be left-handed in history.

~~~~~~~

Unfortunately, it is also true that the age”s interests often color the past with unhistoric hues.

~~~~~~~

There is no wisdom equal to that which comes after the event.

~~~~~~~

There is nothing that solidifies and strengthens a nation like reading of the nation’s own history, whether that history is recorded in books, or embodied in customs, institutions, and monuments.

There is nothing truer than myth: history, in its attempt to ”realize” myth, distorts it, stops halfway; when history claims to have ”succeeded,” this is nothing but humbug and mystification. Everything we dream is ”realizable.” Reality does not have to be: it is simply what it is.

This I hold to be the chief office of history, to rescue virtuous actions from the oblivion to which a want of records would consign them, and that men should feel a dread of being considered infamous in the opinions of posterity, from their depraved expressions and base actions.

~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.

~~~~~~~

Those old credulities, to nature dear, Shall they no longer bloom upon the stock Of History.

The stop-watch of history is running. The race is on . . .

~~~~~~~

The student is to read history actively and not passively; to esteem his own life the text, and books the commentary. Thus compelled, the muse of history will utter oracles as never to those who do not respect themselves.

The study of history is the playground of patriotism.

~~~~~~~

The Supreme Court’s only armor is the cloak of public trust; its sole ammunition, the collective hopes of our society.

~~~~~~~

The theologian may indulge the pleasing task of describing Religion as she descended from Heaven, arrayed in her native purity. A more melancholy duty is imposed on the historian.

~~~~~~~

The unrecorded past is none other than our old friend, the tree in the primeval forest which fell without being heard.

~~~~~~~

The whole past is the procession of the present.

~~~~~~~

The wisdom of hindsight, so useful to historians and indeed to authors of memoirs, is sadly denied to practicing politicians.

~~~~~~~

The world we see that seems so insane is the result of a belief system that is not working. To perceive the world differently, we must be willing to change our belief system, let the past slip away, expand our sense of now, and dissolve the fear in our minds.

~~~~~~~

The world’s history is a divine poem of which the history of every nation is a canto and every man a word. Its strains have been pealing along down the centuries, and though there have been mingled the discords of warring cannon and dying men, yet to the Christian philosopher and historian–the humble listener–there has been a divine melody running through the song which speaks of hope and halcyon days to come.

~~~~~~~

The world’s history is constant, like the laws of nature, and simple, like the souls of men. The same conditions continually produce the same results.

~~~~~~~

The world’s history is the world’s judgment. [Ger., Die Weltgeschichte ist das Weltgericht.]

~~~~~~~

The past is really almost as much a work of the imagination as the future.

~~~~~~~

The Past lies upon the Present like a giant”s dead body.

~~~~~~~

The past remains integral to us all, individually and collectively. We must concede the ancients their place, as I have argued. But their place is not simply back there in a separate and foreign country; it is assimilated in ourselves, and resurrected into an ever-changing present.

~~~~~~~

The principle that human nature, in its psychological aspects, is nothing more than a product of history and given social relations removes all barriers to coercion and manipulation by the powerful.

~~~~~~~

The Russians feared Ike. They didn’t fear me.

~~~~~~~

The self-styled intellectual who is impotent with pen and ink hungers to write history with sword and blood.

~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

The only good histories are those written by those who had command in the events they describe.

~~~~~~~

The only justification for repressive institutions is material and cultural deficit. But such institutions, at certain stages of history, perpetuate and produce such a deficit, and even threaten human survival.

~~~~~~~

The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.

~~~~~~~

The history of the world is the world’s court of justice.- Friedrich Schiller

~~~~~~~

The idea that truth always triumphs over persecution is one of those pleasant falsehoods, which most experience refutes. History is teeming with instances of truth put down by persecution. If not put down forever, it may be set back for centuries.

~~~~~~~

The judicial system is the most expensive machine ever invented for finding out what happened and what to do about it.

~~~~~~~
