What is History and Its Relevance to You?

For history, as nearly no one seems to know, is not merely something to be read. And it does not refer merely, or even principally, to the past. On the contrary, the great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us, are unconsciously controlled by it in many ways, and history is literally present in all that we do. It could scarcely be otherwise, since it is to history that we owe our frames of reference, our identities, and our aspirations.  
From "Unnameable Objects, Unspeakable Crimes" by James Baldwin

I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually. 
~James A. Baldwin
