Wise words

[If I were Queen of everything] “My politicians would have history degrees. […] I don’t think you can be truly effective in politics if you don’t have a proper understanding of history […] we form patterns and it’s incredibly difficult to stop making the same mistakes. It takes historians to see the patterns and how and why they form, and what things we shouldn’t fall for again and what we should do better.”

I was pleased to read this quote in an interview with Yasmin Le Bon in the Stylist magazine this morning. I’m sure a lot of archivists will agree with her!
