“Historia (Inquiry); so that the actions of people will not fade with time.”

The Histories of Herodotus of Halicarnassus

"That is war... To defeat foes in the name of a country. The states affairs of the enemy are inconsequential."

Radiant Historia (videogame)

"The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legends. Legends fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that give it birth comes again."

-Robert Jordan
The Wheel of Time

"Solomon saith: There is no new thing upon the earth. So that as Plato had imagination, that all knowledge was but remembrance; so Solomon giveth his sentence, that all novelty is but oblivion."

-Francis Bacon: Essays LVIII.
(Epígrafe en "El Inmortal" de Jorge Luis Borges)

"¿Y a mí qué me importa el futuro? Sin duda, Seldon lo habrá previsto y se habrá preparado para él. Llegarán otras crisis en el futuro, cuando el poder del dinero esté tan muerto como fuerza histórica como lo está ahora el de la religión. Que mis sucesores resuelvan sus problemas, como yo he resuelto el nuestro."

-Isaac Asimov

Twisted Crown -Poetry-

                          I                                            Wish                                                 the
                       Sir                                             in the                                                title
                       of all                                        legends                                       that pass
                      from the                              dark times in                             their darkest
                      Hour where the myth became realities for the inhabitants of the islands
                       Above the cruel oceans of despair that wash away the hundred years
                         Of wars and spill blood from children that try to escape from the
                          Abomination of a sword that cuts the sand pillar and sculptures
                            From the roots of the ancient tree of death that lies in a valley
                            Of green meadow guarded by the old giant serpent and wolf
                             A vile crown cursed for eternity by the action of his owner
