  1. That’s great, the same for me. I find history so fascinating, although it seems we never learn anything. Philosopher Georg Hegel said: ​“The only thing that we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.”
    George Bernard Shaw had the same thought. “If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.”
