History is a cyclic poem written by Time upon the memories of man.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley

If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday.
~Pearl Buck

History is philosophy teaching by examples.

The great eventful Present hides the Past; but through the din
Of its loud life hints and echoes from the life behind steal in.
~John Greenleaf Whittier

Until lions have their historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunters.
~African Proverb

The memories of men are too frail a thread to hang history from.
~John Still

History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days.
~Winston Churchill



I loved these quotes! I do hope you are feeling a bit better today that you were over the weekend. Four weeks is a long time to be fighting off a viral infection. You need a holiday!

Excellent quotes as ever, feel better soon!

I really like the Pearl Buck quote. Glad you went to the Dr hope you get meds and get well soon!

@Desiree - the holiday did not help much, now I need to rest, and I will do so, promise!
@Sarah - thank you so much!
@Sush - meds received, relaxing ordered :)

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
