"The study of history is a powerful antidote to contemporary arrogance. It is humbling to discover how many of our glib assumptions, which seem to us novel and plausible, have been tested before, not once but many times and in innumerable guises; and discovered to be, at great human cost, wholly false."

-- Paul Johnson




"Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor."

-- Robert Frost

(1874-1963) American poet, received four Pulitzer Prizes
