Despre istorie (R.W. Emerson)

"History no longer shall be a dull book. It shall walk incarnate in every just and wise man. You shall not tell me by languages and titles a catalogue of the volumes you have read. You shall make me feel what periods you have lived. A man shall be the Temple of Fame. He shall walk, as the poets have described that goddess, in a robe painted all over with wonderful events and experiences... He shall be the priest of Pan, and bring with him into humble cottages the blessing of the morning stars, and all the recorded benefits of heaven and earth." [din The Treasury of Ancient Egypt. Miscellaneous Chapters on Ancient Egyptian History and Archaeology, de Arthur Weigall, Rand McNally & Company, 1912]
