Observations

A recent observation by Umberto Eco:

“Despite many legends, which still circulate on the internet, all medieval scholars knew that the world was round.”

A markedly less recent observation by Harry S. Truman:

“The only thing new in the world is the history you do not know.”

My view is that the two observations complement each other very nicely indeed.
