Study History

Famous quotes containing the words study and/or history:

    Why should I seek for love or study it?
    It is of God and passes human wit;
    I study hatred with great diligence,
    For that’s a passion in my own control,
    A sort of besom that can clear the soul
    Of everything that is not mind or sense.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    History is the present. That’s why every generation writes it anew. But what most people think of as history is its end product, myth.
    —E.L. (Edgar Lawrence)
