„The great difficulty which history records is not that of the first step, but that of the second step.“

—  Walter Bagehot British journalist, businessman, and essayist 1826 - 1877
Context: The great difficulty which history records is not that of the first step, but that of the second step. What is most evident is not the difficulty of getting a fixed law, but getting out of a fixed law; not of cementing (as upon a former occasion I phrased it) a cake of custom, but of breaking the cake of custom; not of making the first preservative habit, but of breaking through it, and reaching something better. Ch. 2, The Use of Conflict

„History is nothing but assisted and recorded memory.“

—  George Santayana 20th-century Spanish-American philosopher associated with Pragmatism 1863 - 1952
Context: History is nothing but assisted and recorded memory. It might almost be said to be no science at all, if memory and faith in memory were not what science necessarily rest on. In order to sift evidence we must rely on some witness, and we must trust experience before we proceed to expand it. The line between what is known scientifically and what has to be assumed in order to support knowledge is impossible to draw. Memory itself is an internal rumour; and when to this hearsay within the mind we add the falsified echoes that reach us from others, we have but a shifting and unseizable basis to build upon. The picture we frame of the past changes continually and grows every day less similar to the original experience which it purports to describe. Ch. 2 "History"

„The message I got from my record label at the time — and this was on purpose — was that I wasn't selling enough.“

—  Sophie B. Hawkins American musician 1967
Context: The message I got from my record label at the time — and this was on purpose — was that I wasn't selling enough. Even when the single was a hit, it wasn't enough of a hit — I never got to number 1; I only got to number 5. And MTV didn't like the first video for the song, and we had to do another one. So I never felt anything except how bad I was and like, "Oh, shame on you!" Interviewed by Cathay Che, The Advocate (8 May 2001)

„I am one of the best kept secrets in jazz history. Many of my early records are hard to find and it is still difficult to release new ones.“
