Daily Dose

From The History of England, Volume I, by David Hume


"But the noise of these petty wars and commotions was quite sunk in the tumult of the crusades, which now engrossed the attention of Europe, and have ever since engaged the curiosity of mankind, as the most signal and most durable monument of human folly that has yet appeared in any age or nation."

From Chapter V, William Rufus
