    History is more or less bunk. It’s tradition. We don’t want tradition. We want to live in the present and the only history that is worth a tinker’s damn is the history we make today.
    —Henry Ford (1863–1947)

    Ye distant spires, ye antique towers,
    That crown the wat’ry glade.
    Thomas Gray (1716–1771)

    The men who are grandfathers should be the fathers. Grandpas get to do it right with their grandchildren.
    —Anonymous Grandparent. As quoted in Women and Their Fathers, by Victoria Secunda, ch. 2 (1992)

    There was never a man born so wise or good, but one or more companions came into the world with him, who delight in his faculty, and report it. I cannot see without awe, that no man thinks alone and no man acts alone, but the divine assessors who came up with him into life,—now under one disguise, now under another,—like a police in citizen’s clothes, walk with him, step for step, through all kingdoms of time.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
