"Only someone miraculously innocent of history could believe that competition among ideas could result in the triumph of truth"  John Gray

"History is the queen of the humanities. It teaches wisdom and humility, and it tells us how things change through time." Gordon S. Wood

"A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic, it’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years."  Carl Sagan
Working class American, husband, father, grandpa, veteran, and still high on life.
