History repeating itself is not a theory, nor is it a truth. Itis an observation. There may be things "new under the sun," but I'mafraid to say, that, in and of itself, is a repeat in history.There will always be new things and improvements. The little"similarities" that some mock are in fact what t…he phrase istalking about. And what about the Great Depression in the 30s?America is on the verge of another one right now. People "making mistakes" and "being so stupid" are ways in whichhistory repeat. Better examples would be slavery, time line goes as followsIsraelites, Persians, gladiators roman, Scotland, AfricanAmericans, now the entire American society that is in serviceconstruction or agriculture and food industry, just instead ofwhips they use money; just like we used to mine gold for them andgo to war for them. Modern day society has developed a moreappropriate, easier to swallow system Our Holy crusades into the middle east, under reign of theperversion of whats holy, our constant bombardments into the middleeast for riches and religious items of great significance- to therecent war in Iraq and the foretold invasion of the land. Another major example would be Genocide of Spiritual people bySociety; time line goes as follows, Roman Church back when Jesuswalked and Paul killed Christians, early settlers killing Indians,Jews in Holocaust, America in the next upcoming events, everyonelook up REX84 and make people aware of it, and relate it to theHolocaust, see our cocky arrogance... All it takes for evil toprevail is good men to do nothing, who know what genocides wereprevented by men of god like moses, Luke Skywalker, DenzeilWashington in Eli, Neo in The Matrix, Superman, and Jesus for thisday in age and who knows how many more. When you get down to it everything moves in circles down toprotons, neutrons, electrons, planets, planetary movement,behavioral patterns, wheels on the bus, recycling, even throwingaway trash, we run around in circles, people choose to live in agroundhogs day and don't even notice, a clock, days of the week,months in a year, I believe even time itself travels in a circle astoo the theory of the big bang theory where everything comestogether in the end and then recreates. Only one thing makes iteven a reality and that's God.. and if God is beginning and theend, light, giver of life, alpha and omega, savior to all, then hewould be characterized as direct strait line because a circle hasno beginning or end, him and through him can we break any cycle orinsanity, there may have been much more genocides if godly men likeMoses or Jesus did not stand up and do something despite all theridicule and hatred they are given for truly being Christlike; theywill spit and stone you to the end... That behavioral pattern isalso history repeating itself over and over again. Watch the History Channel's video on the 1930s economic situationand so much resonates with the events of 2008-11. (MORE)
The quote is generally attributed to Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels, who was Adolf Hitler's Propaganda Minister in Nazi Germany. It's also, in various forms, been used by and/or attributed to several people since... Including Lenin and various Chinese ministers. In reality, though, there's no verifiabl…e attribution of the basic quote to anyone. The closest verifiable source would tend to lead us to believe that Goebbels didn't come up with it on his own, but rather got the idea from his boss. In Hitler's book "Mein Kampf" (My Struggle) he originates the idea of "das Grosse Luge" (The Big Lie): "But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success." (MORE)
History tends to repeat itself because many people are not taught or told how or why mistakes were made in history. Because of this, we tend to do the same things that were done previously. This causes a constant repeat of history.
History repeat it self is a pharasal word, used when somthing is happening or soemthing is about to happen that happend also in the past.
You're probably thinking of the famous quote by the great Spanish philosopher George Santayana (1863-1952), who said in The Life of Reason (5 volumes, 1905-6): "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." Another quote comes from German philosopher Karl Marx (1818-1883), wh…o said in The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte (1852):" Hegel remarks somewhere that history tends to repeat itself. He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce. " (MORE)
yes history does repeat itself sadly it already has. The saying those who do not remember history are doomed to repeat it, refers to the fact that when a mistake is made and a lesson is not learned or the result of the mistake was not severe enough to merit remembrance that the same mistake is bou…nd to be repeated. By the same token when something really good happens it will be repeated as well hoping for the same result. I once heard that the definition of stupidity is the constant repetition of the same bad behavior, and the expectation of a different result each time. (MORE)
If we don't learn from it like the saying goes. Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
So dangerously humorous it had to translated into another language. Here is the rough translation in German: Wenn ist das NunstÃ¼ck git und Slotermeyer? Ja! Beiherhund das Oder die Flipperwaldt gersput! . Guys, don't bother, I looked this up on Google Translate and it is a bunch of crap.

The commonly used expression, "Those who ignore history are bound (or doomed) to repeat it" is actually a mis-quotation of the original text written by George Santayana (1863-1952), who, in his Reason in Common Sense, The Life of Reason, Vol.1, wrote "Those who cannot remember the past are condemn…ed to repeat it." Stanford University online also provides an outstanding and much more detailed background on this important and profound philosopher, essayist, poet and novelist. Santayana's quotation, in turn, was a slight modification of an Edmund Burke (1729-1797) statement, "Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it." Burke was a British Statesman and Philosopher who is generally viewed as the philosophical founder of modern political conservatism. ---------------------------------- A classic example is Hitler's invasion of Russia. Napoleon had done that, and Hitler made the same mistake, and suffered the same fate. On both occasions, the Russians simply retreated , drawing the enemy further and further into Russia in their advance, and then, when they Russian winter struck, and the invaders were unprepared and ill-equipped to deal with it, they were slaughtered in their thousands during their retreat. Hitler was fully aware of Napoleon's plight and had planned meticulously how not to fall into the same trap by using the new offensive technique of Blitzkreig (lightning strike). The plan was for Army Group North to take Leningrad, Army Group Centre to take Moscow and Army Group South to take Stalingrad and the Caucasus oilfields. All before the winter weather made mobility impossible. The original start date for Operation Barbarossa was accordingly 15th May 1941 but Mussolini's failing invasion of Greece required German intervention to protect Operation Barbarossa's southern flank. German troops invaded Greece on April 6, 1941; Athens fell on 27 April and mainland Greece was fully occupied by mid-May. Nevertheless, the six week campaign led to Operation Barbarossa being launched five and a half weeks later than planned, on 22 June. Weather (rain and mud at first before the snows) slowed the advance from early October onwards, meaning that the Blitzkreig part of the campaign was shortened from the planned 20 weeks, to just 14. How vital those six weeks would have been we will never know but whilst none of the main city objectives (Leningrad, Moscow and Stalingrad) were taken, all three almost fell. After the Germans took 3 million Russian soldiers captive during the advance, only 90,000 remained to defend Moscow by late 1941. Arguably it wasn't ignoring the lesson of history that was Hitler's fatal mistake, it was not adapting to changing circumstances.

Adding "That's what she said" to the end of innocent things other people say twists the original person's words to sound like they are about sex or perverted things. Examples: 1: Crap, I forgot to take my pill. "That's what she said!" (The first person might have been talking about heart medicat…ion or something, but the second person made it sound like it was about birth control pills. Saying you forgot to take birth control pills just after having sex is not what the boyfriend wants to hear.) 2: Can I have some of that hard meat. "That's what she said!" (The first person was talking about food, but the second person made it sound like a prostitute asking about a man's private body parts.) 3: Dang that's huge. "That's what she said!" (One person is innocently calling something huge, but the other is trying to make it sound like it is about penis size.) (MORE)

What is your question? Is the question whether this quotation is always true? If so, the answer is no.

I'm pretty sure it originated from the television show The Office. The main character, Michael, says it when someone makes an innocent (non-sexual) comment to turn it into something sexual. Example: if someone says "That looks really hard", then someone could say "that's what she said." The "she"… would be someone the guy was having sex with and hypothetically she made that comment during the sex. The "she" doesn't really exist. It's just someone made up who theoretically says a lot of sexual things. But now once you get "that's what she said" jokes it's hard to refrain from saying them. You'd be surprised how often double entendres creep up in everyday life. (MORE)
We don't know of course. Jokes have been a part of human culture since at least 1900 BCE. A fart joke from ancient Sumer is currently believed to be the world's oldest known joke.

Edmund Burke (1729-1797) said "Those who don't know history aredestined to repeat it." George Santayana (1863-1952) said "Those who cannot remember thepast are condemned to repeat it." The full quote from The Life of Reason (1905-1906) by GeorgeSantayana is as follows: "Progress, far from consist…ing in change, depends on retentiveness.When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and nodirection is set for possible improvement: and when experience isnot retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those whocannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." (Many other people have repeated this, or paraphrased it, and theoriginal quote is often misattributed to Winston Churchill, but thequotation is unable to be found in his written work.) "Winston Churchill " It was actually George Santayana. He was a Spanish philosopher. Actually the author originally credited with any such phrase is Edmund Burke. He died before either Winston Churchill or George Santayana were even born. Simplest Answer . Another way of wording the famous quote is: "learn from your mistakes." The Long Answer: As our species pulled it self out of the primordial ooze there has been a constant pattern to our growth. Throughout history, by evolution of the mind as well as technology, we have followed the same series of events leading to the same negative conclusion. Each time mankind has re-started the cycle the stakes of failure have increased. To over simplify this series of events or cycle is as such: There exists several small communities, these communities join to create a large community, and this community begins to grow. Eventually it begins to consume large amounts of resources; natural and human, it grows to the point were it begins rising beyond it's means. This causes a need for more resources as they are consumed at an ever-increasing rate. As history has shown us from the simplest village to complex social systems these needed resources are acquired by brutal acts of desperation and war. Eventually the system becomes ineffective and far too large to sustain its own growth and eventually it collapses upon itself creating casualties both human and environmental in this process. Before our current cycle of human events the possible risk factor was rather minimal, but as we have grown into a global village the stakes are considerably higher. As we witnessed in the near conclusion of our current cycle at the end of World War 11 (a-bomb) and the event that followed (e.g. Cuban missile crisis, global warming, environmental degradation, etc.) To simplify yet again as countries fell into the last stages of desperation war was inevitable. Rather then being between two countries or an act of civil war a conflict between several nations erupted, World War. This was made possible by this cycle's large stride in technology (planes, submarines, battleships etc.). Believing that the actions of the WW1 eventually led to WW11 we will treat them as a similar entity. Mass casualties strained the entire planet as every society and economy was affected. Then in August of 1945 two Atomic Bombs (aka A-bomb, code named Big Boy and Fat Man) were dropped on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Progress had eclipsed the human race as technological advancement surpassed human evolution. The stakes of failure then reached an unprecedented height, for the first time in the history of the world humans had the ability to erase all life on our planet. Humanity was forced to re-evaluate its standings in the world as it began to realize all that had been lost and has done so several times over the last six decades. Civilization cannot afford to follow the cycle to its previous conclusion confirming, "Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it". The two World Wars featured the most casualties (civilian/military) in history, bearing witness to these events, as a global voice, humanity declared "Never again". "We stand on the shoulders of giants and owe a lot to them, however though we maybe only a few heads higher we can still see further. We have an obligation of Stewardship." - Matthew Carter at Design Thinkers'09 "Our civilization, which subsumes most of its predecessors, is a great ship steaming at speed into the future. It travels faster, further, and more laden than any before. We may not be able to foresee every reef and hazard, but by reading her compass bearing and headway, by understanding her design, her safety record, and the abilities of her crew, we can, I think, plot a wise course between the narrows and the bergs looming ahead. And I believe we must do this without delay, because there are too many shipwrecks behind us. The vessel we are now aboard is not merely the biggest of all time; it is also the only one left. The future of everything we have accomplished since our intelligence evolved will depend on the wisdom of our actions over the next few years. Like all creatures, humans have made their way in the world so far by trial and error; unlike other creatures, we have a presence so colossal that error is a luxury we can no longer afford. The world has grown too small to forgive us any big mistakes." - A Short History of Progress, Ronal Wright If we don't know the mistakes people in the past have made, we will make those same errors.

i no i think its so gay its like sexual and dum people should really stop with the you mom and that's what she said!!
It's basically a sexual comment.... for example: If you are doing an art project with glue, when you push the pieces together, You might say to your lab partner "Do it harder." Which would cause another person to say "That's what she said!" Referring to what a woman might say to the man during sex.

Though the actual saying is 'He who forgets history is doomed (or condemned) to repeat it', George Santayana was the one who originally said it (as he was the earliest known proof of saying the quote).
History rarely repeats, even as farce. Those who seek to draw imagined lessons from the past for mechanistic application in the present are as doomed to failure as those who ignore it. History explains and informs, but the conditions of different times and places make each occurence unique. Understa…nding why things are as they are is far more relevant than perceiving re-runs of dissimilar developments. (MORE)

WWII is not an example of history repeating itself because history never repeats its self. There is no way to have the exact same conditions on any given day in order to show that history can in fact repeat. History can also not repeat because time moves linearly and forward and thus there is no way… for History to repeat. Even if things seem the same they are not because their are too many factors in each event of life that can greatly influence the outcome of any event. We can not learn from history specifically from events but we can use history to learn about the human condition and how we try to manage our problems. But we cannot simply justify an event with another event. (MORE)
The quote is "those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it" and it was said by george santayana.
The actual expression is : "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it", and it has been proven true many times. It was first said by philosopher George Santayana.
Well, sometimes history can stop history from being repeated as the people involved can see the consequences from it. An example of this is World War 2; people saw that they gave Hitler too much power and so from then on started wanting to restrict governments in some way. Though there was still tot…alitarian governments, governments wanted to help the independence of other countries. Also, they wanted there not to be any more antisemitism and no more war and so created the United Nations, which worked and still works better to prevent was than the League of Nations did and they let the Jews have Israel though that did have consequences as well.

A: The Bible is often said to be objective history because it isbelieved to be the word of God, without error or human failing.Until around two hundred years ago, even biblical scholarsgenerally held the same view, but the results of archaeology andscholarly research now militate against this view. … A: The Bible contains historical accounts which have no other purposeif it were not an objective historical account because the primaryobjective of the Bible was to teach next generation of followers(Israel) peoples what worked and did not work and what their priorgenerations suffered and flourished due to what pleased God andwhat did not please God. Thus, because all accounts were written toinstruct through eye witness "case studies", any form ofembellishment would not serve any purpose as the "lessons learned"would not be preserved nor passed down. For example, the currentHarvard Business School case studies are written with reality toinstruct future business leaders and Case Law is done the same way. Second of all, many of the historic accounts were legal documentssimilar for example written by King David, King Solomon and wouldhave been codified. The Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek authors were also in many cases veryhardcore Warriors, Priests, Judges and Kings and thus speakingdirectly with God they would want to keep as accurate accounts aspossible as the archivists of the Israel walk and rejection oftheir God. This tribe of people are very conservative and theobjective was preservation of knowledge and dissemination of "whatworked" to future generations. Any sort of embellishment wouldcause future generations to stumble and as a result would notfulfill their mandate. For example, certain time periods before the worldwide flood werecompletely lost had it not been for the retained historic accounts.The objective was to retain. The books were written by individuals who had first hand and/orSpiritually God inspired accounts of history which would addadditional scrutiny. Thus to answer, the Bible is objective history because the authorswere Holy men and some of which was dictated from God Himself. Any arguments that the winners of the war write history do not fitthe Biblical account because there were many cases where theIsraelites did not win the wars. They were taken into slavery.Jesus was crucified. Thus, the historical record itself has naturalchecks and balances. The Bible however, also contains prophecy which are a different setof writings altogether. So far, these have been proven accurate todate. (MORE)
