Quote of the Day

Do you want to know how to tell when you have gotten old? It's when a cyclical theory of history starts to strike you as plausible. It begins to seem that the same stuff keeps coming around again, just like Hegel said. Except that it's not ‘transcended and preserved’; it's just back.
