"Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." This has
been running around my head since the inauguration. Who said that?

Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it....This is the condition of children and barbarians, in whom instinct has learned nothing from experience.
~George Santayana (1863-1952), Spanish-born American philosopher and writer primarily known for his theories of aesthetics, morality, and the spiritual life. Life Of Reason (1905), Vol. 1, Chap. 12, P.284
