Some Inspiring Words from the Past

National and Domestic History of England, writen by W.H.S. Aubrey in 1869

The history of a country should be a subject of transcendent interest to its people. It concerns them to learn how the national life has assumed its existing forms; through what processes of change it has passed; how some revolutions have been swift and stormy, while others have been gradual and silent, but none the less effectual. A nation is not born in a day, and there is a marked contrast between its infantile life and its matured vigour, a contrast so great that the superficial observer might question the identity; and yet the two are one, although differing in outward form, just as the disposition and aptitudes of the man are, in the main, what they were in the child.

Patriotism, which is a love of country, and which prompts to service on behalf of country, also identifies all who possess it with the re-cords of the Past,—with its successes and failures, with its joys and sorrows, with its nobleness and its sin, with its renown and its disgrace, with its sufferings and its triumphs, with its struggles and its progress. The present generation is helping to make history for generations to come, not more surely than did those which are gone make history for the present; and thus, nationally, it lives both by anticipation and by retrospect.
