Why is history important?

Check out what these people have to say...

That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that History has to teach
-Aldous Huxley

You have to know the past to understand the present.
- Dr. Carl Sagan

History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are.
-David C. McCullough

“Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.”
-Haile Selassie
