This came to me in a dream last night: “What is the history of a people except their biography writ large? Our history is the sum of our biographies.”
I must have read that somewhere at some time, but I don’t remember doing so. A Google search today brought no results. Could this possibly be original with me? So I ask you, dear readers, if you know of a source for those two statements, or statements so like them as to be the original source for them, that can be verified as having been written prior to 7:00 AM, December 4, 2015. Pending the results of this, I hereby copyright those two sentences.
