Quote of the Day (Voltaire, on ‘The Crimes and Misfortunes of History’)

“The great faults of the past are also very useful in many ways; the crimes and misfortunes of history cannot be too frequently pondered on, for whatever people say, it is possible to prevent both." — French author, humanist, rationalist, and satirist Voltaire (1694-1778), The Philosophical Dictionary (1764)
