History

chains abcThe more I study history, the more difficult it becomes for me to take my personal dramas seriously.

Knowledge of the past is a counteracting element for the malady of self-pity.

Wherever there have been human beings, there has been adversity. And wherever there has been adversity, human beings have exercised the courage, self-determination, and persistence to overcome it.

When the people of the future study the people of the present, I hope they find the attitudes and accomplishments of our era to be consistent with that theme.

I hope they see in us another generation who refused to be defined by the trials and tribulations of its time.
