Those who do not archive the past are condemned to retype it!

- Garfinkel and Spafford

As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.
We also know
There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know.
We don't know.

- Donald Rumsfeld, U.S. Secretary of Defense
