On Learning, from the past...

Blog quote #990...  
"Don't be afraid of history. Take all of it you can get."-Charles Eames, designer- 
This would be a call for learning about who came before us and what they did- both successes and mistakes. And while history  sometimes repeats, there is no guarantee of that. 
At the very minimum, it's good to know what others were thinking or what they attempted to do. And some parts of life are pretty constant over time, no matter who you are, and where you live. 
So...keep learning. And when in  doubt--take a peek and see if there is anything we can learn from the past. There is a reason they hand out past performances at the horse tracks. Helpful, but certainly don't give the whole story, nor do they predict the future. Onward....
That's my view...what say you?
More great things await
