“History, said a Latinist once, is the very life of the memory and the mistress of life. “Mistress of life” because it teaches us filial piety, piety towards out parents, our ancestors, our masters, our homeland. No land can be preserved without this piety which is a noble and spiritual sentiment, for it maintains relations above and beyond borders, even beyond death.”

Jean de VIGUERIE (1935)

“I often tell my students that of the future, the present and the past, only the past really has pith and reality. The present is only a fugitive instant. The future does not exist yet. The only reality is the past, and this is why so many people want to turn us away from it. The only facts are those from the past and that is why they want to push them away. It is part of human nature to live with the past, to build with it, to make anew with it. And this is why, when they want to kill initiative and the spirit of true creativity, they begin by abolishing all remembrance of the past. Fortunately, as Fustel de Coulanges said, “the past never completely dies; man can forget it, but he always has it within in.””
