Worldview Historian and Teacher
"The historian's task is one: to tell it as it happened.... This is the one peculiar characteristic of history, and to truth alone must sacrifice be made."
Lucian, How to Write History
In toiling toward the happy life nothing is more lofty, nothing more pleasant, nothing bolder against vices, nothing more praiseworthy in every place of dignity; and moreover, according to the words of philosophers, nothing is more essential to government, nothing more helpful in leading a moral life, than the beauty of wisdom, the praise of learning and the advantages of scholarship.
