Quote of the Day

man's back

“We die, we die rich with lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have entered and swum up like rivers, fears we have hidden in these wretched caves. I want all these marks on my body, we are the real countries, not the boundaries drawn on maps with the names of powerful men.”

– Herodotus, writer of The Histories, a Greek historian who is regarded as the Father of History by much of Western civilization.
