How about a game? Who said and when. No fair googling the answer. Ok to google for your own education but not to take the reins. If that's too restrictive, then whatever works.

"I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.
We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against the it, ...but we must sail, not drift, nor lie at anchor."

From the "Autocrat of the Breakfast Table' Oliver Wendell Holmes, 1858.

I'm not sure how to operate this game. Do we post the answer after say..5 replies and then if no correct ones the first answering post takes the reins? Help
In the meantime:

"The role of government and its relationship to the individual has been changed so radically that today government is
involved in almost every aspect of our lives.
Political, economic and racial forces have developed which we have not yet learned to understand or control. If we are
ever to master these forces, make certain that government will belong to the people, not the people to the government,
and provide for the future better than the past, we must somehow learn from the experiences of the past."

OK... here goes:

"I am certain that after the dust of centuries has passed over our cities, we, too, will be remembered not for victories or defeats in battle or in politics, but for our contribution to the human spirit."

"One of thes days Alice, one of these day! Bam! Zoom! .....To the moon Alice..."

Btw the earlier post about ...lessons of the past was by Bernard Baruch, 11 May 1964, uttered when presenting his papers to Princeton University at the youthful age of 93, The quote was printed in the NY Times.
