E.H. Gombrich on History

“What I have always loved best about the history of the world is that it is true. That all the extraordinary things we read were no less real than you and I are today. What is more, what did happen is often far more exciting and amazing than anything we could invent.”

— E.H. Gombrich, A Little History of the World, chapter 35
