A Shake-speare Speech on Past & Present to Predict the Future

Here’s a little speech from Shake-speare, lending us a thought for today. Apply it as you may:

There is a history in all men’s lives,

Figuring the natures of the time deceased,

The which observed, a man may prophesy,

With near aim, the main chance of things

As yet not come to life, who in their seeds

And weak beginning lie in-treasured.

Such things become the hatch and brood of time.

  • Henry IV, part two, 3.1, the Earl of Warwick
