History Is A Weapon is an anonymous project. “History Is A Weapon is something you should tell everyone about; we are unimportant—don't waste your time asking us who we are.”
“We cannot simply be passive. We must choose whose interests are best: those who want to keep things going as they are or those who want to work to make a better world. If we choose the latter, we must seek out the tools we will need. History is just one tool to shape our understanding of our world. And every tool is a weapon if you hold it right.”

“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out.  The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.  Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don't want it badly enough. They're there to stop the other people.”

'You've got to find what you love.'
By Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs’s commencement speech to the graduates of Stanford University in 2005. In it he talks about getting fired from Apple in 1985, life and death.
“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
