Not a long note. Just one to prepare a reader that history is not perhaps what they’ve always heard it was.
For this, I have chosen some quotes, but I’d like some input as to which one I might include.
The very ink with which history is written is merely fluid prejudice.
History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon.
God cannot alter the past, though historians can.
History is written by the victors.
Any thoughts about these? They all suit, one way or another, so that’s not a factor, really. Do you know of any quotes that might serve? Please leave a comment with quotes or discussion.
