I am thankful the most important key in history was invented. It’s not the key to your house, your car, your boat, your safety deposit box, your bike lock or your private community. It’s the key to order, sanity, and peace of mind. The key is ‘Delete.’
– Elayne Boosler
The kitchen is the heart of every home, for the most part. It evokes memories of your family history.

If you look back in history of the women who are most memorable and most stylish, they were never the followers of fashion. They were the ones who were unique in their style, breakers of the rules. They were authentic, genuine, original. They were not following the trends.

If anyone thinks they’d rather be in a different part of history, they’re probably not a very good student of history. Life sucked in the old days. People knew very little, and you were likely to die at a young age of some horrible disease. You’d probably have no teeth by now. It would be particularly awful if you were a woman.
– Elon Musk
History is a cyclic poem written by time upon the memories of man.

History is nothing if not an epic tale of missed opportunities.
– Graydon Carter
History never really says goodbye. History says, ‘See you later.’
– Eduardo Galeano
The whole history of science has been the gradual realization that events do not happen in an arbitrary manner, but that they reflect a certain underlying order, which may or may not be divinely inspired.

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.

Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.
– Hermann Hesse
I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me, certainly, but I am also, much more than that. So are we all.
– James A. Baldwin
If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
– Desmond Tutu
I never feel lonely if I’ve got a book – they’re like old friends. Even if you’re not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they’re part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life.

The way you ‘take history’ is also a way of ‘making history.’
