What's past is prologue.
The past is never dead. It's not even past.
History is the present. That's why every generation writes it anew.
History doesn't repeat itself but it often rhymes.
--Mark Twain (maybe)
History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.
The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there.
History. An account, mostly false, of events, mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers, mostly knaves, and soldiers, mostly fools.
-- Ambrose Bierce
