History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.
Never doubt that you can change history. You already have.
A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.
Mohandas K. Gandhi
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.
