Max Weber
b. 4-21-1864; Erfurt, Saxony, Prussia
d. 6-14-1920; Munich

Maximilian Weber, a lawyer, politician, political economist and sociologist, was viewed more as an historian during his lifetime.

Max Weber quotes ~
• “The experience of the irrationality of the world has been the driving force of all religious revolution.”
• “Daily and hourly, the politician inwardly has to overcome a quite trivial and all-too-human enemy: a quite vulgar vanity.”
• “The fate of our times is characterized by rationalization and intellectualization and, above all, by the ‘disenchantment of the world.’ Precisely the ultimate and most sublime values have retreated from public life either into the transcendental realm of mystic life or into the brotherliness of direct and personal human relations. It is not accidental that our greatest art is intimate and not monumental.”
• “Only he has the calling for politics who is sure that he will not crumble when the world from his point of view is too stupid or base for what he wants to offer. Only he who in the face of all this can say ‘In spite of all!’, has the calling for politics.”
• “Only by strict specialization can the scientific worker become fully conscious, for once and perhaps never again in his lifetime, that he has achieved something that will endure. A really definitive and good accomplishment is today always a specialized act.

H. G. Wells,

Herbert George Wells
b. 9-21-1866; England
d. 8-13-1946

Author H. G. Wells, though best known for his work in the science fiction genre, he also wrote a three-volume work, The Outline of History. First published in 1920, it popularized history and there is now a 2005 edition.

H. G. Wells quotes ~
• “If we suppose a sufficient righteousness and intelligence in men to produce presently, from the tremendous lessons of history, an effective will for a world peace – that is to say, an effective will for a world law under a world government – for in no other fashion is a secure world peace conceivable – in what manner may we expect things to move towards this end? . . . It is an educational task, and its very essence is to bring to the minds of all men everywhere, as a necessary basis for world cooperation, a new telling and interpretation, a common interpretation, of history.”
• “A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not stake their own.”
• “Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.”
• “Our true nationality is mankind.”

• “Teaching is too vital an occupation to be left to the lazy or greedy or negative.”
• “Life isn’t worth living unless you’re willing to take some big chances and go for broke.”

William Appleman Williams is one of the 20th century's most prominent historians of American diplomacy.

(from book description)

Woodrow Wilson (D)
(28th President, 1913-1921)
b. 12-28-1856; Staunton, VA
d. 1924

Woodrow Wilson earned a Ph.D in history and political science and authored “History of the American People.

Woodrow Wilson quotes ~
• “America was established not to create wealth but to realize a vision, to realize an ideal - to discover and maintain liberty among men.”
• “Business underlies everything in our national life, including our spiritual life. Witness the fact that in the Lord's Prayer, the first petition is for daily bread. No one can worship God or love his neighbor on an empty stomach.”
• “At every crisis in one's life, it is absolute salvation to have some sympathetic friend to whom you can think aloud without restraint or misgiving.”
• “We have not given science too big a place in our education, but we have made a perilous mistake in giving it too great a preponderance in method in every other branch of study.”

Carter Godwin Woodson
b. 12-19-1875; New Canton, VA
d. 4-3-1950; Washington, DC

Historian, author, and journalist Carter G. Woodson is best remembered as the “Father of Black History” and for establishing Black History Week that is now Black History Month.

Woodson, the son of former slaves, was self taught up to entering Douglass High School at age 20, where he earned a diploma in two years. Woodson then taught school and went on to earn a degree from Berea College (1903), and advance degrees from the University of Chicago (1908) and Harvard University (1912).

FYI ~ Woodson's parents, James and Elizae Riddle Woodson, moved their family to West Virginia when they heard that a high school for blacks was being built.

Carter G. Woodson quotes ~
• “I am a radical.”
• “In our so-called democracy we are accustomed to give the majority what they want rather than educate them to understand what is best for them.”
• “This crusade is much more important than the anti-lynching movement, because there would be no lynching if it did not start in the schoolroom.”
• “The mere imparting of information is not education.”
• “When you control a man's thinking you do not have to worry about his actions.”
• “Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history.”
• “In the long run, there is not much discrimination against superior talent.”
• “If the Negro in the ghetto must eternally be fed by the hand that pushes him into the ghetto, he will never become strong enough to get out of the ghetto.”
• “The strongest bank in the United States will last only so long as the people will have sufficient confidence in it to keep their money there.”
