Happiness, whether in business or private life, leaves very little trace in history.More Fernand Braudel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Events are the ephemera of history; they pass across its stage like fireflies, hardly glimpsed before they settle back into darkness and as often as not into oblivion. Every event, however brief, has to be sure a contribution to make, lights up some dark corner or even some wide vista of history. Nor is it only political history which benefits most, for every historical landscape - political, economic, social, even geographical - is illumined by the intermittent flare of the event.More Fernand Braudel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All history must be mobilized if one would understand the present.More Fernand Braudel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The key problem is to find out why that sector of society of the past, which I would not hesitate to call capitalist, should have lived as if in a bell jar, cut off from the rest; why was it not able to expand and conquer the whole of society?... [Why was it that] a significant rate of capital formation was possible only in certain sectors and not in the whole market economy of the time?More Fernand Braudel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
