Historians Are Writers

The significance of man is that he is that part of the universe that asks the question, What is the significance of Man? He alone can stand apart imaginatively and, regarding himself and the universe in their eternal aspects, pronounce a judgement: The significance of man is that he is insignificant and is aware of it. Progress and Power (1936)

— Carl Becker 1873–1945, American historian & Cornell Professor
