“These Are The Stories Of The Persians And The Phoenicians. For My Part I Am Not Going To Say About These Matters That They Happened Thus Or Thus…” — HERODOTUS

“…But I Will Set My Mark Upon That Man That I Myself Know Began Unjust Acts Against The Greeks…

…And…

…Having So Marked Him…

…I Will Go Forward In My Account…

…Covering Alike The Small And Great Cities Of Mankind. …”

HERODOTUS (c.484 BC-c.425 BC) -Widely Referred To As "The Father Of History" And Was The Author Of "The Histories"-

“…For Of Those That Were Great In Earlier Times…

…Most Have Now Become Small…

…And Those That Were Great In My Time…

…Were Small In The Time Before.

Since, Then, I Know That Man’s Good Fortune Never Abides In The Same Place…

…I Will Make Mention Of Both Alike.”
