  • “If you think you can or think you can’t you are probably right”




  • “The Real challenge of history is to resist the tendencies so prevalent today, to label, to

stereotype, to expose…and instead to bring perspective and empathy to our subjects, so

that the past can truly come alive even if just for a few moments in all of it’s

complexity.” - Popular Historian & Author Doris Kearns Goodwin, 1995
