“What happens but once might as well not have happened at all. The history of the Czechs will not be repeated, nor will the history of Europe. The history of the Czechs and of Europe is a pair of sketches from the pen of mankind’s fateful inexperience. History is as light as individual human life, unbearably light, light as a feather, as dust swirling in to the air, as whatever will no longer exist tomorrow.”

-The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, p. 223
