History Quotes

Oriana Fallaci sounds like the name of an act that's illegal in several southern US states.
What is God's age? I guess not earlier than 200,000 years ago. I'd even say there was no God before the end of the Neolithic age, and that means God is roughly 7,000 years old.
I remember where I was and what I was doing when I first heard the news.  I just don't remember what the news was.
It must have been fun being the first humans, setting all those new world records every day.

Not only does history repeat itself, it increasingly forgets where it laid its keys.



Unfortunately, I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle.
Marilyn Monroe, in a June 13 1962 telegram declining a party invitation

I don't know how to tell you what I feel. I live in perpetual expectancy. You come and the time slips away in a dream. It is only when you go that I realize completely your presence. And then it is too late. You numb me. This is a little drunken... I am saying to myself here is the first woman with whom I can be absolutely sincere. I remember your saying – you could fool me, I wouldn't know it – when I walk along the boulevards and think of that. I can't fool you – and yet I would like to. I mean that I can never be absolutely loyal – it's not in me. I love women, or life, too much – which it is, I don't know. But laugh, I love to hear you laugh. You are the only woman who has a sense of gaiety, a wise tolerance – no more, you seem to urge me to betray you. I love you for that. I don't know what to expect of you, but it is something in the way of a miracle. I am going to demand everything of you – even the impossible, because you encourage it. You are really strong. I even like your deceit, your treachery. It seems aristocratic to me.
If history is written in blood, it's redacted with urine.
It’s all out there. The truth of our history is waiting to be learned.

The ways of the world are discoverable, but the problem is that each of us is born ignorant. We can only fight against the oppression we know, the oppression we can recognize. I keep aging, just as everyone does, and I keep learning additional snippets that give me a greater understanding of the invisible cage I live in. The more I learn, the more powerful I become and the closer I get to being able to break out. Unfortunately, as I age and become more knowledgeable, I age and get closer to death. A dead slave cannot fight to correct the system.

We age. We learn. We become disgusted by the truth. We start to figure out how to fight back, but we die before we can do much of anything. The young behind us must go through the same learning period before they have a chance of fighting it. The power structure stays in place because it hides. It relies on the limited lifetimes of individual humans as a primary defense. It also continuously acts to restrict or remove information from the common culture that would reveal itself.

How do we, the common people, fight such a system? We can fight it in two ways. First, we must ensure that the information about the true history of the oppression of the majority by the minority be freely available to all. Second, we must ensure that such information becomes and remains a primary part of the education of all new people. Then, even though we die, we can ensure the protection and freedom of the people who live after us.
