The more we remember the way we began the closer we get to the best we can be.
America: The Dream Goes On.
We as Americans have come from a long way, from fighting for our freedom to fighting to set slaves free. From that, now we as Americans try to fight for others people's rights. We remember they we began and now we are trying to be the best we can be. The U.S. army says, "Be all you can be in the army". I believe they say that because they want us as Americans and as a nation to be the best.
"An exact knowledge of the past is an aid to the interpretation of the future, which in the course of human things must resemble if it does not reflect it." .
"History is philosophy by examples." Thycydides .
I believe that if you do not know and understand your past you are destined to repeat it in some shape or form. Therefore when you know your past it is easier to improve on the past mistakes you have made. I remember a person that said, "Knowing is half the battle", and I believe that it is truly is.
"Most men learn wisdom from the fortunes of others." Tacitus .
My mother always tells me that a smart person learns from other people mistakes so they will not have to go through what they went through. Wisdom is something that is not given to you; it is learned from past experiences and from other people. A fool is some one who doesn't learn from the fortunes of others and the saying is that "God only watches over children and fools" so the wise man watches himself.
"I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times I will remember the works of the Lord. . . that the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children." Psalm 77:5; 78:6 .
I remember what the lord has done for me; I try to tell some one where ever I go. In the bible Jesus done marvelous things in his time remember in the bible where he came across a blind and def man.
