(p.vi) Men at some time are masters of their fates. The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.

—William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

The historian does for the past what the necromancer and fortuneteller pretend for the future, but the latter, in contrast to the historian, are exposed to verification.

—Paul Valéry
