Learning from history quotes

“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” ~ Ecclesiastes 1:9

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” ~ George Santayana

“History doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes.” ~ Attributed to Mark Twain

“Nowhere does history indulge in repetitions so often or so uniformly as in Wall Street. When you read contemporary accounts of booms or panics the one thing that strikes you most forcibly is how little either stock speculation or stock speculators to-day differ from yesterday. The game does not change and neither does human nature.” ~ Reminiscences of a Stock Operator
