Posts Tagged ‘Undone – The Sweater Song’

Mort thought that history was thrashing around like a steel hawser with the tension off, twanging backwards and forwards across reality in great destructive sweeps.

History isn’t like that. History unravels gently, like an old sweater. It has been patched and darned many times, reknitted to suit different people, shoved in a box under the sink of censorship to be cut up for the dusters of propaganda, yet it always– eventually– manages to spring back into its old familiar shape. History has a habit of changing the people who think they are changing¬†it. History always has a few tricks up its sleeve. It’s been around a long time.

Terry Pratchett, Mort
