[Quote] History

"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
  • Reason in Common Sense by George Santayana, Philosopher (16 December 1863 - 26 September 1952)

"Those who can remember the past are condemned to watch it repeating."
  • Ah, beloved Internet, how I adore thee.

  2. History doesn't repeat itself; historians repeat each other.
