History Quotes


“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." So said George Santayana, capturing one of the most important reasons why history quotes are such a vital part of our lives. We are a product of our past for it influences the present and affects the future. We cannot escape it. And if we don’t honor it by remembering it, we will repeat the same mistakes of those who came before us. History quotes are essential in our understanding of the march of time, and how each occurrence, each milestone and each event, affects the ones that follow it. History certainly does march on, as does time. Reference.com Definition of History

"I'm a student of conservation history and what I see are cycles, ... The trend over time has been a broader level of conservation and concern. But there are peaks and valleys. We had tremendous environmental activism under Theodore Roosevelt, then went through a drought in the '20s. We had another resurgence in conservation interest in the '30s, hit a lull in the '50s, then had a highly active period in the '60s and '70s. We're in one of those down periods again, but I'm as certain as I can be that we're getting to the end of this period and headed toward a new era of conservation and concern." Bruce Babbitt
