David C. McCullough

This quote was added by mania_in_relief
History is not the story of heroes entirely. It is often the story of cruelty and injustice and shortsightedness. There are monsters, there is evil, there is betrayal. That's why people should read Shakespeare and Dickens as well as history - they will find the best, the worst, the height of noble attainment and the depths of depravity.
