A. J. P. Taylor
He was what I often think is a dangerous thing for a statesman to be - a student of history and like most of those who study history, he learned from the mistakes of the past how to make new ones.
A. N. Wilson
If you read about Mussolini or Stalin or some of these other great monsters of history, they were at it all the time, that they were getting up in the morning very early. They were physically very active. They didn't eat lunch.
A. Whitney Brown
The past actually happened but history is only what someone wrote down.
A.D. Aliwat
Really, the definition of what makes us human confuses me. Showing humanity is like this synonym for treating others kindly or like you want to be treated or whatever, when that isn't really human at all. Whoever came up with that definition is a real scammer, and a real genius. More than anything else, humans have been terrible to each other throughout history, and this is still the way it works today and will continue to work. It's how we're wired. I have human understanding; that's it.
A.D. Posey
Stop making excuses and start making history.
A.E. Samaan
Truth is only relative to those that ignore hard evidence.
A.E. Samaan
History is indeed stranger than fiction. The twists and turns of human history are too outlandish for to be believable in any work of fiction.
A.E. Samaan

A.E. Samaan
Knowledge can never imprison you, but you can be captive to your ignorance.
A.E. Samaan
Past is PrologueThis book was written observing the premise that the seeds of Holocaust denial take root and prosper with misinformation. Clarity and transparency are imperative, as they leave no room for denial theories that would deprive the victims justice, or rob the living of a future. Generations of historians have enthusiastically gone about their craft knowing full well that 'he who owns the past, owns the future'. Improperly documented history, or more precisely, fraudulent versions of history not only deprive the victims of pasts injustices due recognition of their suffering, but also rob the living of a fair chance at a future free from the dangers of repeating past injustices.
A.H. Septimius
History will remember him as a savage, but that's because we write the histories.
A.J. Beirens
The moment that all these myths were brought together in so-called 'holy books'has -without any doubt- to be seenas the most disastrous point in timein the history of mankind.From: Gesels van een imaginaire god(Scourges of an imaginary god)
A.J. Beirens
From history books you should at best believe just the punctuation. The rest is uncertain, incomplete, distorted, exaggerated or even fabricated.
A.J.P. Taylor
History is not another name for the past, as many people imply. It is the name for stories about the past.
Aanchal Malhotra
Memorialization is not a passive practice but an active conversation.
Aanchal Malhotra
A transference of memory was occurring as she, the vessel, the source, wrung every small, muffled detail into me, the depository. And once it began, it was difficult to interrupt or stop
Aanchal Malhotra
We should have realized it sooner, at least my father should have, that there was no coming back. Not in September when the riots died down, not in October when the subcontinent still lay in shock, not even in November as he had hoped and promised us. Lahore was now lost forever
Aanchal Malhotra
Partition memory is particularly pliable. Within it, the act of forgetting, either inevitably or purposefully, seems to play as much a part as remembering itself.
Aanchal Malhotra
If I considered the Partition an archeological site, and the many experiences of those who witnessed it as the site's structural sedimentation, then the deeper I excavated, the more I found, and that too in innumerable renditions.
Aanchal Malhotra
I have grown up listening to my grandparents' stories about 'the other side' of the border. But, as a child, this other side didn't quite register as Pakistan, or not-India, but rather as some mythic land devoid of geographic borders, ethnicity and nationality. In fact, through their stories, I imagined it as a land with mango orchards, joint families, village settlements, endless lengths of ancestral fields extending into the horizon, and quaint local bazaars teeming with excitement on festive days. As a result, the history of my grandparents' early lives in what became Pakistan essentially came across as a very idyllic, somewhat rural, version of happiness.
Abba Eban
History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives.
Abdul Kalam
We have not invaded anyone. We have not conquered anyone. We have not grabbed their land, their culture, their history and tried to enforce our way of life on them.
Individuals often turn to poetry, not only to glean strength and perspective from the words of others, but to give birth to their own poetic voices and to hold history accountable for the catastrophes rearranging their lives.
History, too, has a penchant for giving birth to itself over and over again, and those whom it appoints agents of change and progress do not always accept their destinies willingly.
Love is our most unifying and empowering common spiritual denominator. The more we ignore its potential to bring greater balance and deeper meaning to human existence, the more likely we are to continue to define history as one long inglorious record of man's inhumanity to man.
History is a hermaphrodite with many distinguished lovers. We are neither mysteries nor strangers but the living breath of revelation made flesh by the unrestrained desires of a free and universal love. Universal me. Universal you.--from Past Present and Future are One
Where humanitysowed faith, hope, and unity, joy's garden blossomed.
The best of humanity's recorded history is a creative balance between horrors endured and victories achieved, and so it was during the Harlem Renaissance.
History dressed up in the glow of love's kiss turned grief into beauty.

A moral cynicism was sapping the strength of our society, half-lies were not only condoned, but regarded as smart. Many had remained untouched by the welter of the holocaust of battle fields, mass bombings, prison camps, the blood, pain, heartbreak and death remained to tally beyond their comprehension. Ghost of Bataan Speaks
Abraham Lincoln
The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.

Adam Gopnik
Whatever our official pieties, deep down we all believe in lives. The sternest formalists are the loudest gossips, and if you ask a cultural-studies maven who believes in nothing but collective forces and class determinisms how she came to believe in this doctrine, she will begin to tell you, eagerly, the story of her life.
Adam Hochschild
So eager were its officials that the German government had telegraphed its ambassador in St. Petersburg two declarations of war to be delivered to Russia's foreign minister: one if Russia did not reply to its ultimatum, the other rejecting the Russian reply as unsatisfactory. In his haste and confusion, the ambassador handed over both messages.
Adam Lambert
I'm inspired by history, different periods.
Adam Nicolson
We are wanderers, place shifters, the cosmic homeless. This is not a modern truth, and Achilles is not some new kind of existentialist hero. It is the oldest truth of all, surviving uncomfortably into the modern world of cities and overkings, diplomacy and accommodation, the power structures and the proliferation of stuff which the Mediterranean world provides.
Adam Phillips
Just as there are phantom limbs there are phantom histories, histories that are severed and discarded, but linger on as thwarted possibilities an compelling nostalgias.
Adam Selzer
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was the most sweeping civil rights legislation of its day, and included women's rights as part of its reforms. Ironically, the section on women's rights was added by a senator from Virginia who opposed the whole thing and was said to be sure that if he stuck something about womens' rights into it, it would never pass. The bill passed anyway, though, much to the chagrin of a certain wiener from Virginia.
Adam Smith
Civil government, so far as it is instituted for the security of property, is in reality instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor, or of those who have some property against those who have none at all.
Adele Rickerby
our country is poor but our hearts are rich
Adelheid Manefeldt
That was the problem with ones actions. They would always remain 'acted'. They always remained 'being done', and their influence on the world, whether small or big , would always be palpable. You couldn't refute the past. He would always remain liable for the consequences of his actions. Should anyone knock on his door and ask for reparation, he would give what was asked of him without question. There simply was no way of clearing the world of its history, and its history was simply a compilation of the existence of people and other organisms , and their actions. Of things which had been done.
Aditi Khorana
I had often thought about people who lived through strange and compelling times
Adolf Hitler
It's possible to satisfy the needs of the inner life by an intimate communion with nature, or by knowledge of the past.
Agatha Christie
The evidence of history is against you. The contemporary historian never writes such a true history as the historian of a later generation. It is a question of getting the true perspective, of seeing things in proportion.
This only is denied to God: the power to undo the past.

Alan Jacobs
Peter Brown, that great historian of early Christianity, has given the most cogent explanation for the arising of the cult of the saints in the late Roman world.

When I draw something, I try to build some kind of history into it. Drawing an object that has a certain amount of wear and tear or rust; or a tree that is damaged. I love trying to render not just the object, but what it has been through.
Alan Moore
Your pretty empire took so long to build, now, with a snap of history's fingers, down it goes.

Alan Watts
In known history, nobody has had such capacity for altering the universe than the people of the United States of America. And nobody has gone about it in such an aggressive way.
Alasdair MacIntyre
History is neither a prison nor a museum, nor is it a set of materials for self-congratulation.
Alastair Reynolds
History is what we write, not what we remember. Why should we tarnish the memory of our planet by enshrining our less then noble deeds?
Albert Camus
To correct a natural indifference I was placed half-way between misery and the sun. Misery kept me from believing that all was well under the sun, and the sun taught me that history wasn't everything.
Albert Camus
Ale zawsze nadchodzi godzina w historii, kiedy ten, co ośmiela się powiedzieć, że dwa i dwa to cztery, jest karany śmiercią.
Albert Camus
If the only significant history of human thought were to be written, it would have to be the history of its successive regrets and its impotences.
Albert Camus
Those who weep for the happy periods which they encounter in history acknowledge what they want not the alleviation but the silencing of misery.
Albert Camus

Albert J. Nock
The positive testimony of history is that the State invariably had its origin in conquest and confiscation. No primitive State known to history originated in any other manner.
Albert Jou
U Bazelu, u Švicarskoj, zaustavili su se u jednom javnom svratištu da steknu novu snagu. Tu su svojim očima mogli vidjeti jadno vjersko stanje koje su prouzročili protestantski reformatori: profanirane crkve, razbijene kipove; ljude su pokapali na otvorenim poljima i bez vjerskih obreda, a lakomci su punili svoje džepove prodavajući dragocjenosti i umjetnine koje su pokrali u crkvama.
Albert L. Hurtado
Before Sutter, native people had heeded the cycle of the seasons, time was infinite, and life's rhythms were unchanging. Now, for at least part of their lives, some Indians were wedded to a concept that proclaimed that time was limited and that it had economic value. The clang of Sutter's bell announced that time was money, that it marched onward, and that it waited for no man, including Indians in the 1840s.
Albert O. Hirschman
History is nothing if not far-fetched.
Albert Schweitzer
One truth stands firm. All that happens in world history rests on something spiritual. If the spiritual is strong, it creates world history. If it is weak, it suffers world history.
Albert Speer
I do not think that in those early days of September, Hitler was fully aware that he had irrevocably unleashed a world war. He had merely meant to move one step further. To be sure, he was ready to accept the risk associated with that step, just as he had been a year before during the Czech crisis; but he had prepared himself only for the risk, not really for the great war.
Albert Speer
For the commission to do a great building, I would have sold my soul like Faust. Now I had found my Mephistopheles. He seemed no less engaging than Goethe's.
Albert Wattenberg
After the instrumentation was reset, Fermi told Weil to remove the rod another six inches. The pile was still subcritical. The intensity was increasing slowly - when suddenly there was a very loud crash! The safety rod, ZIP, had been automatically released. Its relay had been activated by an ionization chamber because the intensity had exceeded the arbitrary level at which it had been set. It was 11:30 a.m., and Fermi said, I'm hungry. Let's go to lunch.
Albert-László Barabási
Mark Twain once said that history doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme.
Alberto Manguel
...the Bush administration may, in future years, be remembered 'for bringing peace to the Middle East' (as Condoleezza Rice has pronounced). History may be the mother of truth, but it can also give birth to illegitimate children.
Aldous Huxley
That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.
Aldous Huxley
From their experience or from the recorded experience of others (history), men learn only what their passions and their metaphysical prejudices allow them to learn.
Aldous Huxley
These, he said gravely, are unpleasant facts; I know it. But then most historical facts are unpleasant.
Aldous Huxley
De Sade is the one completely consistent and thoroughgoing revolutionary of history.
Aldous Huxley
The charm of history and its enigmatic lesson consist in the fact that, from age to age, nothing changes and yet everything is completely different.
Aldous Huxley
Men do not learn much from the lessons of history and that is the most important of all the lessons of history.

That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.

Alex Lamb
So, what's the status? said Ira as he pulled himself down to his couch.Will is turning into a starship, Hugo replied, clearly only half in jest. We're about to watch history in the making.
Alex Shakar
On a cement pediment stands the inevitable bronze statue of a man in a cheap suit.
Alex Z. Moores
It's still hard to live in a foreign country with unfamiliar people, even when you're with the person you love. I don't have any roots or history of my own here. A person needs their history around them to remember who they were and to remind them of where they're going. I'm worried about leaving my history and memories behind me.
Alexander Haig
You have to look at the history of the Middle East in particular. It has been one of failure and frustration, of feudalism and tribalism.
Alexander McCall Smith
Human history seems to me to be one long story of people sweeping down
Alexander von Humboldt
The philosophical study of nature endeavors, in the the vicissitudes of phenomena, to connect the present with the past.
Alexandre Dumas
We are entitled to violate history, provided that it results in handsome offspring.
Alexandre Dumas
It is quite rare for God to provide a great man at the necessary moment to carry out some great deep, which is why when this unusual combination of circumstance does occur, history at once records the name of the chosen one and recommends him to the admiration of posterity.
Alexis de Tocqueville
History is a gallery of pictures in which there are few originals and many copies.
Alfred A. Montapert
The majority see the obstacles the few see the objectives history records the successes of the latter, while oblivion is the reward of the former.
Alfred Bruce Douglas
I am the Love that Dare not Speak its Name
Alfred Korzybski
What is history? What is its significance for humanity? Dr. J. H. Robinson gives us a precise answer: Man's abject dependence on the past gives rise to the continuity of history. Our convictions, opinions, prejudices, intellectual tastes; our knowledge, our methods of learning and of applying for information we owe, with slight exceptions, to the past-often to the remote past. History is an expansion of memory, and like memory it alone can explain the present and in this lies its most unmistakable value.
Alfred North Whitehead
No period of history has ever been great or ever can be that does not act on some sort of high, idealistic motives, and idealism in our time has been shoved aside, and we are paying the penalty for it.
Alfred W. Crosby
European emigrants and their descendants are all over the place, which requires explanation.
Ali Smith
It is important to know the stories and histories of things, even if all we know is that we don't know.
Alice Miller
Without realizing that the past is constantly determining their present actions, they avoid learning anything about their history. They continue to live in their repressed childhood situation, ignoring the fact that is no longer exists, continuing to fear and avoid dangers that, although once real, have not been real for a long time.
Alice Roosevelt Longworth
Dorothy is the only woman in history who has had her menopause in public and made it pay.
Alice Shapiro
I cannot tell whether diamonds appeared in his eyes or mine as the shine of adoration became the icon one sees in history, a Byzantine sparkle, Medieval armor against all odds.
Alice Walker
I'm not convinced that women have the education or the sense of their own history enough or that they understand the cruelty of which men are capable and the delight that many men will take in seeing you choose to chain yourself - then they get to say 'See, you did it yourself.'
Alice Walker
All History is current all injustice continues on some level, somewhere in the world.
Alison Sweeney
'Days' has always been strong as an icon in TV history, and it's still going on strong and represents the genre of daytime drama so well. I'm proud to be a part of it.
Alison Weir
Arthur managed to speak to his grandmother [Queen Eleanor of England], demanding that she evacuate the castle with all her possessions and then go peaceably wherever she wished, for he wanted to show nothing but honour to her person. The Queen replied that she would not leave it, but if he behaved as a courtly gentlemen, he would quit this place, for he would find plenty of castles to attack other than the one she was in.
Alison Weir
They inhabited a lost world of splendour and brutality, a world dominated by religious change, in which there were few saints.
Alison Weir
Court life for a queen of France at that time was, however, stultifyingly routine. Eleanor found that she was expected to be no more than a decorative asset to her husband, the mother of his heirs and the arbiter of good taste and modesty.
Alison Weir
Until quite recently women's histories were largely overlooked but in the wake of feminism there has been increasing interest in retrieving them.
Allan Zullo
Thank you, sir. But, uh, can you tell me where the First New York Regiment is?
Almudena Grandes
A veces pienso que el mayor delito del franquismo ha sido ése, secuestrar la memoria de un país enterio, desgajarlo del tiempo, impedir que tu, que eres mi nieta, la hija de mi hijo, puedas creer como cierta mi propia historia...
Aloysius Jnr
Everything happens; some get hurt maybe a fairy tale of damage but nature can't be change. We just walk away with memories that carries a story being made after as history.
Alphonse de Lamartine
Providence conceals itself in the details of human affairs, but becomes unveiled in the generalities of history.
Alton Brown
Culinary tradition is not always based on fact. Sometimes it's based on history, on habits that come out of a time when kitchens were fueled by charcoal.
Alton Brown
The kitchen's a laboratory, and everything that happens there has to do with science. It's biology, chemistry, physics. Yes, there's history. Yes, there's artistry. Yes, to all of that. But what happened there, what actually happens to the food is all science.
Alysia Abbott
The heavy warlike losses of the AIDS years were relegated to queer studies classrooms, taught as gay history and not American history.
Amaka Imani Nkosazana
You may have fallen down, but you can get back up again. You may have doors shut, but new doors will open for you. You may have been lied on, but the truth will come to the light. You may have been hurt, but the pain will pass. You are a survivor. You have a history of surviving.
Amar Bose
We learned the value of research in World War II.
Amartya Sen
While we cannot live without history, we need not live within it either.
Ambeth R. Ocampo
Who says history is stagnant? For a historian, facts do not change; it is the way we look at things, our interpretations, that are always changing. This is what makes history exciting - that we can always find something new in what is old.
Ambeth R. Ocampo
If we cannot agree on what was important yesterday, what more on events that happened a hundred or three hundred years ago? The point here is that history is open ended and we cannot be sure about the past. So why study history? Because it teaches us to see the connections between events. Knowing how and why a certain event happened is helpful because in many cases people separated by time and place can sometimes be in similar situations. They can be mentally contemporaneous without knowing it. History gives us hindsight.
Ambeth R. Ocampo
A historian can never claim to have the last word on anything as he is limited by his sources and further so by his viewpoint.
Ambrose Bierce
History is an account, mostly false, of events, mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers, mostly knaves, and soldiers, mostly fools.
Ambrose Bierce
God alone knows the future, but only an historian can alter the past.
Ambrose Bierce
The slightest acquaintance with history shows that powerful republics are the most warlike and unscrupulous of nations.
Ambrose Bierce
Amelia Boynton Robinson
It's important that young people know about the struggles we faced to get to the point we are today. Only then will they appreciate the hard-won freedom of blacks in this country.
Amelia Boynton Robinson
I can never do justice to the great feeling of amazement and encouragement I felt when, perhaps for the first time in American history, white citizens of a Southern state banded together to come to Selma and show their indignation about the injustices against the African-Americans.
Américo Castro
The person who expects to understand history must submerge himself in it, must get rid of patriotism, as well as bitterness. And especially in studying a historic life that consists in insecurity must the historian rid himself of all insecurity. He must accept the totality of the data in all their fullness, the noble with the paltry, thinking of how the two interlock.
Amit Abraham
I don't like regressing - I move beyond. Life belongs to the future and I believe in creating History rather than visiting and revisiting the past.
Amit Chaudhuri
Calcutta has still not recovered from history: people mourn the past, and abhor it deeply.
Amit Chaudhuri
History was what had happened; class was something you read about in a book.
Amit Chaudhuri
Class was what formed you, but didn't travel to other cultures
Amor Towles
History is the business of identifying momentous events from the comfort of a high-back chair.
