Quote of the Day (Margaret MacMillan, on How History Cautions Us)

History should not be asked to provide validation for political arguments in the present, or clear guidance for the future, but what it can do is caution us about taking too simple a view of the past.”— Canadian historian Margaret MacMillan, “2016 and All That,” Financial Times, July 9-10, 2016
