Quote of the Day (John Dos Passos, on History, a ‘Lifeline Across the Scary Present’)

“In times of change and danger when there is a quicksand of fear under men’s reasoning, a sense of continuity with generations gone before can stretch like a lifeline across the scary present.”—John Dos Passos, The Ground We Stand On: The History of a Political Creed (1941)
