“There is no future without memory. History itself is memoria futuri. In fact, without actively reflecting on the past, a people can have no future; without actively understanding what aspects of the past hold us together, we cannot understand the present; without exploring the specific manner of our past, we can never hope to understand our relations to ourselves and others.” – Selwyn Cudjoe

“History is a mighty dramos, enacted upon the theatre of times, with sunsfor lamps and eternity for a background.” – Thomas Carlyle
