History

“History is a slippery business; the past is not a constant but a landscape that mutates according to argument and opinion.”
― Penelope Lively, How It All Began

“I am addicted to arrivals, to those innocent dawn moments from which history accelerates.”
― Penelope Lively, Moon Tiger

“I've grown old with this century; there's not much left of either of us.”
― Penelope Lively, Moon Tiger

“The past is our ultimate privacy; we pile it up, year by year, decade by decade, it stows itself away, with its perverse random recall system.”
― Penelope Lively, How It All Began
