To give an accurate and exhaustive account of that period would need a far less brilliant pen than mine.

An account, mostly false, of events, mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers, mostly knaves, and soldiers, mostly fools.
For historians ought to be precise, truthful, and quite unprejudiced, and neither interest nor fear, hatred nor affection, should cause them to swerve from the path of truth, whose mother is history, the rival of time, the depository of great actions, the witness of what is past, the example and instruction of the present, the monitor of the future.
The causes of events are ever more interesting than the events themselves.
The history of the past interests us only in so far as it illuminates the history of the present.
Our ignorance of history causes us to slander our own times.
History books that contain no lies are extremely dull.
