What's past is prologue.

    --William Shakespeare

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.  
                              --George Santayana

The past is never dead. It's not even past.

                     --William Faulkner

History is the present. That's why every generation writes it anew.

                            --E.L. Doctorow

History doesn't repeat itself but it often rhymes.

​                                                  --Mark Twain (maybe)

History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.

             --Karl Marx

The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there.

                        --L.P. Hartley 

History. An account, mostly false, of events, mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers, mostly knaves, and soldiers, mostly fools.                                                       

                    -- Ambrose Bierce
