History is fluid and always shaped by the bias and purpose of the historian. History is written by the winners.

Those who fail to know history are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past. No two times or circumstances are ever alike.

History is nothing but a collection of dry facts about dead people. We can never understand how our ancestors thought and felt. Events change, but the human condition is constant.

Every generation tailors history to suit its beliefs and needs.

History is, ultimately, unknowable and writing it is a creative activity.

If you are interested in history, you’ve heard all of these and more.
