Excerpt from The World's History and Its Makers, Vol. 1

History, to the living, is not the chief function of lan guage, but to the unborn the handing down of historv will be by far the most notable of our deeds. Whoever, then, adds to this heritage that is to be transmitted to the future, throws himself wisely upon the gratitude of a race which will rapidly grow more generous and appreciative. As we may easily perceive the desirability of stores of knowledge for the future, so we may by that measure also value our own opportunities of peering into the past. By means of history, we who are limited in life to a few decades may dwell upon the experience of our own kind for sixty centuries.
