History is unrelated to me.
  • People currently living were paying insufficient
    attention to the dead. young people at schools
    have been given the idea of a liberal education,
    without the substance of historical knowledge.
    They have been trained in the formulaic
    analysis, not in the key skill of reading widely
    and fast. They have been encouraged to feel
    empathy with imagined Holocaust victims, not to
    write essays about why and how their predicaments
    suffering arose.
  • Niall Ferguson, Civilisation The West and The
    Rest (Allen Lane, 2011)

Im only interested in the future.
  • The dead outnumber the living, and we ignore the
    accumulated experience of such a huge majority of
    mankind. The past is the only reliable source of
    knowledge about the fleeting present and to the
    multiple futures that lie before us, only one of
    which will actually happen. History is not just
    how we study the past, it is how we study time
  • Niall Ferguson, Civilisation The West and The
    Rest (Allen Lane, 2011)
