For today only a quote from Adenauer which relates a little bit to the article of why one should study history.

De geschiedenis is de totale som van de dingen die hadden kunnen vermeden worden.

German: Die Weltgeschichte ist auch die Summe dessen, was vermeidbar gewesen wäre.

English: History is the sum of things that could have been avoided.

Konrad Adenauer
Duits politicus 1876-1967
