A quote of interest by Stephen Jay Gould on history, its pull on us, and our ability to shape the future:
History channels a pathway among numerous theoretical alternatives. In his last play, Shakespeare noted that "what's past is prologue; what to come, in yours and my discharge." But present moments build no such wall of separation between a past that molds us and a future under our control. The hand of the past reaches forward right through us and into an uncertain future that we cannot fully specify.
