A Quote by Claude Gernade Bowers on conformity, history, mistakes, and past

History is the torch that is meant to illuminate the past, to guard us against the repetition of our mistakes of other days. We cannot join in the rewriting of history to make it conform to our comfort and convenience.

Claude Gernade Bowers (1878 - 1958)
