Happiness, whether in business or private life, leaves very little trace in history.More Fernand Braudel quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everything must be recaptured and relocated in the general framework of history, so that despite the difficulties, the fundamental paradoxes and contradictions, we may respect the unity of history which is also the unity of life.More Fernand Braudel quotes [10/20/2011 09:10:30]
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]
