History does not repeat itself

-History does not repeat itself, but it often rhymes.

-History is a set of lies, agreed upon.

-History is the sum total of things that could have been avoided.

-History is a gallery of pictures in which there are few originals and many copies.

History repeats itself, first as a tragedy, then as a farce.
