A Quote by Philip Jason on history, death, past, and future

the true history of the world is the history of things dying. what we learn from studying it is that all things die. there are many ways to pretend that this is not the case by making things seem more important than they actually are. it is the job of historians to enjoy doing this. all day long, dedicated historians find ways to cancel out the intrusion of death into all the circumstances that collectively constitute the great extended histories that they look to for clues with which to understand the future. because the future is a product of life and history is a recollection of death, they find nothing useful. but, it keeps them busy until they die.

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on imagination, myth, dreams, hope, laughter, love, knowledge, history, facts, experience, grief, and death

I believe imagination is stronger than knowledge - that myth is more potent than history.  I believe that dreams are more powerful than facts - That hope always triumphs over experience - That laughter is the only cure for grief.  And I believe that love is stronger than death.

Robert Fulghum (1937 -)

A Quote by Mr. on war, peace, declare peace, history, life, witness, and mr prophet

History has taught us, there is no way to win a war. No matter how badly you crush them, those you hate shall rise once more. Yet, we have witnessed this same scene being played time after time. Let us end this vicious cycle and take a positive step in the name of life. Declare Peace.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on love, history, politics, war, theory, and conquest

History will never change because of politics or conquests or theories or wars; that's mere repitition, it's been going on since the beginning of time.  History will only change when we are able to use the energy of love, just as we use energy of the wind, the seas, the atom.
