Fortune: 131 - 140 of 2327 from Freebsd Fortunes 4

Freebsd Fortunes 4:  131 of 2327

History has much to say on following the proper procedures.  From a history
of the Mexican revolution:

        "Hildago was later defeated at Guadalajara.  The rebel army was
captured on its way through the mountains.  All were courtmartialed and
shot, except Hildago, because he was a priest.  He was handed over to
the bishop of Durango who excommunicated him and returned him to the
army where he was then executed."

History is curious stuff
        You'd think by now we had enough
Yet the fact remains I fear
        They make more of it every year.

History is nothing but a collection of fables and useless trifles,

History repeats itself.  That's one thing wrong with history.
 
Freebsd Fortunes 4:  138 of 2327

History repeats itself -- the first time as a tragi-comedy, the second

Freebsd Fortunes 4:  140 of 2327

History shows that the human mind, fed by constant accessions of knowledge,
periodically grows too large for its theoretical coverings, and bursts them
asunder to appear in new habiliments, as the feeding and growing grub, at
intervals, casts its too narrow skin and assumes another...  Truly the imago
state of Man seems to be terribly distant, but every moult is a step gained.
                -- Charles Darwin, from "Origin of the Species"
