Knowledge of the Past Portends Great Future
 
From: bernhard1848@att.net
 
“A people who have not the pride to record their history will not long have the virtue to make history that is worth recording.”
 
“No man is fit to be entrusted with control of the present who is ignorant of the past; and no people who are indifferent to their past need hope to make their future great.”
