Henry Steele Commager – history

Ajouter un commentaire

« For a people to be without history, or to be ignorant of its history, is as for a man to be without memory – condemned forever to make the same discoveries that have been made in the past, invent the same techniques, wrestle with the same problems, commit the same errors; and condemned, too, to forfeit the rich pleasures of recollection. Indeed, just as it is difficult to imagine history without civilization, so it is difficult to imagine civilization without history. » ~Henry Steele Commager(1965), American Historian
