'If you don't know history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that does not know it's part of the tree.' ~ Micheal Crichton
There is so much beauty and profundity in this quote. And I honestly could not have framed better why people should study history more.
History is a story of how society rose; how people thought; events that changed the world; events that still have an effect on the world today and so much more then that too. I find it ludicrous when people say that it’s pointless to study history in schools; to them, all I have to say is this eloquent quote by none other then Micheal Crichton.
