Miscellaneous quotes, including:

  • Lawyers are arrogant and think they can do anything, including write history,” stated Professor of Legal History Stanley Katz and ex-Dean of the University of Chicago Law School (New York Times, May 3, 1983): “Well, they can’t.”
  • The end of our exploring will be to arrive where we started and see the place for the first time.” T.S. Eliot, Quartets
  • History: an account mostly false, of events unimportant, which are brought about by rulers mostly knaves, and soldiers mostly fools. Ambrose Bierce
  • America is the only nation in history which miraculously has gone directly from barbarism to degeneration, without the usual interval of civilization. Georges Clemenceau
  • “The trouble with this country is,” observed Herndon, “that there are too many people going about saying, ‘The trouble with this country is–‘.” Sinclair Lewis
  • Federalism: the concept, which, above all others, has served to incapacitate the nation’s conscience.” M.A. DeWolfe Howe, “Federalism and Civil Rights.” MHS Proceedings 77 (1965): 15.
  • A professor is one who talks in someone else’s sleep. W.H. Auden
  • The historian is a prophet looking backwards. A.W. von Schlegel
  • For my part, I consider that it will be found much better by all parties to leave the past to history, especially as I propose to write that history myself. Winston Churchill
  • What experience and history teaches is this–that people and governments have never learnt anything from history or acted on principles deduced from it. G.G. Hegel
  • The new race of academic reviewers may be cleverer, more conscientious, fairer than those who went before and they may take their job more seriously, but they are a complete disaster from everyone’s point of view–publisher, book buyer, writer–because practically no one reads them. It is not just that they assume a higher dedication and a higher level of seriousness than exists among most intelligent, educated novel readers. They are quite simply too dull. Auberon Waugh
  • Then there was the moron who thought a mental institution was a college, but found that in a mental institution you have to show some improvement before you get out. Anonymous
