Edward Gibbon (1737 -1794); author of 'The History of the Decline ...

History is little more than the register of the crimes, follies, and misfortunes of mankind.”   —   Edward Gibbon

(True.  But also, history is probably the most subjective of the academic disciplines.  As they say:  History is written by the victors.  They usually downplay their own foibles, while magnifying their accomplishments.  In order to make your side more virtuous you need to demonize the other side.  “Facts” aren’t always what they appear to be.  It definitely makes me wonder why it’s always been my favorite subject!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
