Doomed to Repeat the Past (Kurt Vonnegut)


"As the philosopher George Santayana said, 'Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.'"

"Is that a fact?" she said.  "Well - I've got news for Mr. Santayana: we're doomed to repeat the past no matter what.  That's what it is to be alive.  It's pretty dense kids who haven't figured that out by the time they're ten."

Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut, Ch. 10
