|Books permit us to voyage through time, to tap the wisdom of our ancestors.
– Carl Sagan (1934-1996)
|People will not look forward to posterity, who never look backward to their ancestors.
– Edmund Burke (1729-1797)
|It is self-destructive for any society to create a situation where a baby who is born into the world today automatically has pre-existing grievances against another baby born at the same time, because of what their ancestors did centuries ago. It is hard enough to solve our own problems, without trying to solve our ancestors problems.
– Thomas Sowell (1930-)
