Places, Time, & History

"We like to believe that we see ourselves as living in places, as acting in time, as the protagonists of real history. But we seldom get near the realities: it is the abstract substitutes, the mental counters, that our minds fasten on." (Robert Farrar Capon, The Romance of the Word, 46)
