THE STUDY OF HISTORY


Che Guevara

Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

What human beings can do, might do, or ought to do makes no sense at all unless we know what they have done already. This involves the study of history. History examines the lives of people, the consequences of ideas, and the ending quest of daily bread. It presents human misfortunes and greatness as well as the struggle for survival. Study of the past reveals valuable achievements as well as dreadful mistakes, and in so doing helps us meet the unexpected challenges of our own day.
