34 History That Walk You Down Memory Lane

History

Everyone has a history. It's made up of the experiences you have had up until now. History is sprinkled with beautiful memories and laced with sad moments. Either way, it's still our history and what makes us who we are.

Time and again, we'll be compelled to go back memory lane. Maybe because something reminded us of the past, we are going through something we've experienced, we want to see how far we've come, or we are sharing our story.

Some things in history we'd rather forget. However, sometimes we heal by going back over them. Time heals our wounds even though we may never fully recover.

Going back to things we thought we'd never walk through is a form of therapy. We tend to heal more if we can face the demons in our history. After all, we conquered them, and that's how we are here.

But if you don't feel ready to look down that road, it's always okay. Give yourself time. Even if it takes years, always go through your healing phase at your own speed.

Only you know how deep your experiences touched you. No one should ever tell you how to grieve. Grief and pain are personal.

If you need to let it out, find someone who has been through a similar situation. At least they'd understand your pain because they have been down the same road.

But history is not all sad and gloomy. It carries our victories, biggest moments, happiest periods, and times we wish we could return to.

It has the people who have loved us and been there for us despite everything. It has the times we smile and laugh hard when we think of.

History is our past lives, the happy and the sad. It's everything we've been through. Our history quotes will undoubtedly walk you down memory lane.

I'm in class, so teach me. And teach me he did: In those fifty minutes, the Old Man made me take religion seriously.

"Hey Pudge," the Colonel said. "What do you think of a truce?" "It reminds me of when the Germans demanded that the U.S. surrender at the Battle of the Bulge," I said. "I guess I'd say to this truce offer what General McAuliffe said to that one: Nuts."

Most scholars agree that there are more than three hundred Old Testament prophecies that predicted the coming of the Messiah. When you read them and then compare those to events recorded in the New Testament that are obvious fulfillments of the prophecies, it's truly amazing to see God's plan revealed.

In truth, no men on earth can cheer like Englishmen, who do so rally one another's blood and spirit when they cheer in earnest, that the stir is like the rush of their whole history, with all its standards waving at once, from Saxon Alfred's downwards.
