Knowledge in the making of History

History can come alive in the eyes of the listener. Behold, for what the history has to
represent to those. George Macaulay Trevelyan (1876-1962) a British Historian quotes,

“Every true history must force us to remember that the past was once as real as the
Present and as uncertain as the future.”

The quote has a lot of impact, as it states the truth. To remember the past is memories, the
present shall soon be the past and memories too, and the future is something that will come in
time with its own story to write. The quote to me means, that there is always history being made
and going to be made. That no one shall forget the history that has taken place, that more history
is going to be made. Whether it be good or bad, it is all up to how the future shall turn out.
This quote sums it all up about how it is relevant to today. It not only talks about the past
but the present, and the future. As George Macaulay Trevelyan quotes,
“…………as real as the present and as uncertain as the future.”
The time is the present that takes place right now, and the future is the next day or years ahead.
Those to shall then become part of history, the days that are lived for. That too will come alive
and represent history in all its meaning for the pathway to more adventurous learning. Time will
be the key that unlocks the future for history, as the present is just in the making of what shall
become of written accomplishments.
