"When experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual." Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

My take on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - quote: “The plot of Dawn is a logical continuation of the Pandora’s Box opened in that earlier film where primates who had been subject to cruel experimentation exact their revenge. Dawn is set ten years after Rise and depicts a society where humans have been decimated by a virus unleashed through the same experiments that gave the primates their super intelligence.” Read the rest at the link …

“Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

- George Santayana

New blog entry from Susie - quote: “the word ‘timidity’ popped into my head because I have gotten too brave for my own good…and I love the feeling…so I found a bunch of quotes from brave people whom I have always been impressed with.
