"Father of History"

"Of all men's miseries the bitterest is this, to know so much and to have control over nothing.”

“If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it.”

“Men's fortunes are on a wheel, which in its turning suffers not the same man to prosper for ever.”

- Herodotus [circa 484 - 425 BCE]
