C. S. LEWIS "Quote of the Week"

To study the past does indeed liberate us from the present, from the idols of our own market-place. But I think it liberates us from the past too. I think no class of men are less enslaved to the past than historians. The unhistorical are usually, without knowing it, enslaved to a fairly recent past.

C. S. Lewis, They Asked for a Paper, chapter 1
