History Quotes - Page 7
Life isn't meant to be easy. It's hard to take being on the top - or on the bottom. I guess I'm something of a fatalist. You have to have a sense of history, I think, to survive some of these things... Life is one crisis after another.
Richard M. Nixon
When someone tells me about Malala, the girl who was shot by the Taliban - that's my definition for her - I don't think she's me. Now I don't even feel as if I was shot.

Black And White
Jesus Christ belonged to the true race of prophets. He saw with open eye the mystery of the soul. Drawn by its severe harmony, ravished with its beauty, he lived in it and had his being there. Alone in all history, he estimated the greatness of man.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The suicide bombers who struck London on 7 July 2005 killed 52 innocent people and wounded hundreds more. All of them must live with their memories. And the rest of us will always remember where we were when we heard that London had been hit by the worst terrorist attack in its history.
What does the artist do? He draws connections. He ties the invisible threads between things. He dives into history, be it the history of mankind, the geological history of the Earth or the beginning and end of the manifest cosmos.
It's a very good historical book about history.
My generation of bossy, confident, baby-boom women were something brand new in history. Our energy and assertiveness weren't created by Betty Friedan, unknown before her 1963 book, or by Gloria Steinem, whose political activism, as even the Lifetime profile admitted, did not begin until 1969.

Love is never defeated, and I could add, the history of Ireland proves it.
Pope John Paul II
No people in the history of the world have ever been so misunderstood, so misjudged, and so cruelly maligned.
John Brown Gordon
All that is noble in the world's past history, and especially the minds of the great and the good, are never lost.

And History will smile to think that this is the species for which Socrates and Jesus Christ died.
I understand people, and I think that my life and my history and what I represent can relate to a lot of the women, the independents, the moderate voters.
