American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition
- Santayana, George 1863-1952. Spanish-born American philosopher and writer primarily known for his theories of aesthetics, morality, and the spiritual life. In addition to his philosophical works, such as the four-volume Realms of Being (1927-1940), he wrote poetry and a novel, The Last Puritan (1935).
“Though Santayana is outraged that Jarnac is dead, Gerard presents him with the documents that prove Jarnac secretly controlled Carmago's vast industrial empire and planned to use his financial power to launch a Fourth Reich.”
“Santayana is a lawyer who repeatedly chides Gerard for seeking revenge rather than justice; he insists that the fascists will only be destroyed when the Resistance has sufficient evidence to convict them in the court of world opinion.”
“One of their leaders, Santayana, is a prominent lawyer, who uses his social position to gather information on the fascist network in order to publish it in the underground press.”
“To paraphrase Santayana, those who don't take time to learn history are condemned to repeat it.”
“It's called Santayana's Law of Repeating Consequences, and although the wording is different depending on which source one consults, the point remains the same: He who does not remember history is destined to repeat it.”
“By making the educational needs of the student subordinate to original research as the end goals of professorship, a thinker such as Santayana who tried to connect disparate elements of philosophy together rather than focus on a specialized field would remain in the academic background.”
“Santayana" already number 304 in a Google search, and that's sure to rise.”
“Because, as the philosopher George Santayana warned, "Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it.”
“What was it, after all, that George Santayana once noted?”
“I think it was Santayana who said that unless we remember the past we are condemned to repeat it.”
