History is a story with the most interesting characters and plotlines ever brought to mind.
History satisfies that desire to ‘know’. History is neat, packaged and explained. People like that.
History delivers insights and thrills in a narrative with
ten twenty thirty forty a hundred times the sting of mere fiction because you know it actually happened. Most of it anyway.
While looking back with hindsight and making sense of things from afar, history is a chance for the average mortal to gain the wisdom of a god.
Current events are super interesting as well, I’ll grant you that. But history is like the prequels – that in a number of ways, are actually better than the original.
I love history. History might even love me back. What’s for certain is I love all these photos.
