“Not to know what happened before one was born is always to be a child.” – Cicero
“It isn’t with magic that men make their immortality. They do so with what they’ve learned on their travels across the frontiers of five millennia, salvaging from the ruins of families and the death of cities what they find to be useful or beautiful or true.” – Lapham, Lewis H., editor. Lapham’s Quarterly. Volume 1.1.
