During the course of my study of History I have come across historical quotes or quotes made in the course of History, mostly by historians that are really interesting. I reproduce them here so that I do not forget them and that readers too can learn about them.
Titus Livius Patavinus – (Known also as Livy) 64 / 59 BC – c. AD 17
Author of Ab Urbe Condita Libri (Books from the Foundation of the City)
“What chiefly makes the study of history wholesome and profitable is this, that in history you have a record of the infinite variety of human experiences plainly set out for all to see, and in that record you can find for yourself and your country both examples and warnings.“
