Famous quotes containing the words history and, development and/or history:

    There is a constant in the average American imagination and taste, for which the past must be preserved and celebrated in full-scale authentic copy; a philosophy of immortality as duplication.

    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)

    The American has dwindled into an Odd Fellow—one who may be known by the development of his organ of gregariousness.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ... in America ... children are instructed in the virtues of the system they live under, as though history had achieved a happy ending in American civics.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)
