History & Time
The task of history is to establish the truth of the world.
History is the torch that is to illuminate the past, to guard us against the repetition of our mistakes of other days. We cannot join in the rewriting of history to make it conform to our comfort and convenience.
We have need of history in its entirety, not to fall back into it, but to escape from it.
History is the nightmare we must wake from.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
Nothing is certain except the past.
But to explain History is to depict the passions of mankind, the genius, the active powers, that play their part on the great stage.
Only through history does a nation become completely conscious of itself.
The only interesting answers are those which surpass the questions.
Nothing else in the world is so powerful as an idea whose time has come.
The event of creation did not take place so many kalpas or aeons ago, astrologically or biologically speaking. Creation is taking place every moment of our lives.
He who works for eternity counts not time.
