Last and First Men
 

David Palumbo

"Drawing is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times. It brings together man and the world. It lives through magic."

-Keith Haring

 
 

Bill Sanderson

"In prehistoric times, Homosapiens was deeply endangered. Early humans were less fleet of foot, with fewer natural weapons and less well-honed senses than all the predators that threatened them. Moreover, they were hampered in their movements by the need to protect their uniquely immature young - juicy meals for any hungry beast. "

-Robert Winston

 
 

Tyler Jacobson

"Explorations of the world are simultaneously explorations of the human body and being, charting the range of sensory experiences possible in the world and the values that can be attached to such experiences."

-Chris Gosden, "Prehistory: A Very Short Introduction"

 
 

Gregory Manchess

"Egypt gave birth to what later would become known as 'Western Civilization,' long before the greatness of Greece and Rome. "

-John Henrik Clarke

 
 

Ricardo Martinez

"In world mythology, there are countless examples of tragic characters whose greatest strength is also the source of their undoing. But the ancient Greeks and Romans also held the view that acceptance is the beginning of wisdom. "

-Simon Van Booy

 
 

Tran Nguyen

"A lost world. Yet its foundations and edges were permanent-the ruins of Pompeii, the glorious remnants or the Forum. A world that endured, even as it retreated into the past. A world visited, imagined, ever waiting, yet asleep."

-Deb Caletti

 
 

Douglas Smith

"There is something dark and wintry about the atmosphere of the later Middle Ages."

- Lytton Strachey

 
 

Mark Elliott

"The institution of chivalry forms one of the most remarkable features in the history of the Middle Ages."

-Horatio Alger

 
 

David Johnson

"Not much was really invented during the Renaissance, if you don't count modern civilization. "

-P.J. O'Rourke

 
 

Paul Cox

"The Renaissance is studded by the names of the artists and architects, with their creations recorded as great historical events."

-Arthur Erickson

 
 

Mark Summers

"Lives in previous centuries for women are largely a matter of class. It would have been fun to have been a rich, privileged woman in the 18th century, but no fun at all to be her maid."

-Antonia Fraser

 
 

Gary Kelley

"The negative cost of Lewis and Clark entering the Garden of Eden is that later expeditions regardless of what they were intended to do, later expeditions did not deal with the native peoples with the intelligence with the almost kindly resolve that Lewis and Clark did. "

-William Least Heat-Moon

 
 

Edward Kinsella III

"The nineteenth century was completely lacking in logic, it had cosmic terms and hopes, and aspirations, and discoveries, and ideals but it had no logic. "

-Gertrude Stein

 
 

Kent Barton

"The nineteenth century will ever be known as the one in which the influences of science were first fully realised in civilised communities; the scientific progress was so gigantic that it seems rash to predict that any of its successors can be more important in the life of any nation."

-Norman Lockyer

 
 

John Mattos

"I think every age has a medium that talks to it more eloquently than the others. In the 19th century it was symphonic music and the novel. For various technical and artistic reasons, film became that eloquent medium for the 20th century. "

- Walter Murch

 
 

Maria Corte Maidagan

"The Roaring Twenties were the period of that Great American Prosperity which was built on shaky foundations. "

-J. Paul Getty

 
 

Oscar Ramos

"Where there is age there is evolution, where there is life there is growth."

-Anjelica Houston

 
 

Chris Gall

"Men and women whose early youth was shaped in the ordeal of the Great Depression showed the values formed in that crucible when tyranny threatened a world. "

-Steve Buyer

 
 

Thomas Ehretsmann

"One of the great things about the Fifties is there are so many secrets - people who've come back from the war and done these terrible things that they don't want to think about, or can't say what they did because they signed the Official Secrets Act. "

-Sara Sheridan

 
 

Rudy Gutierrez

"The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn't the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility."

-John Lennon

 
 

C.F. Payne

"There was a clarity to the Nineties. It was pre-9/11, before that anxiety kicked in that exists right now about the financial crisis or terrorism. We were all just going to move forward into the millennium and everything was always going to get better. Then, whoops, that didn't happen."

-Carrie Brownstein

 
 

Michal Lisowski

"People are naming it the Third Wave, the Information Age, etc. but I would say those are basically technological descriptions, and this next shift is not about technology - although obviously it will be influenced and in some cases expressed by technologies."

-Paul Hawken

 
 

James Bennett

"We aren't in an information age, we are in an entertainment age."

-Tony Robbins

 
 

Goni Montes

"Evolution never looks to the future."

-Richard Dawkins

 
 

Sylvain Sarrailh

"I think the human race doesn't have a future if it doesn't go into space."

-Stephen Hawking

 
 

Michal Dziekan

"Even though the future seems far away, it is actually beginning right now."

-Mattie Stepanek

 
 

Dongyun Lee

"This future is ours to embrace. Whether we, the established generations, choose to accept that is in our court. "

-Rosario Dawson
