Arnold J. Toynbee
b. 4-14-1889; London, England
d. 10-2-1975

Arnold J. Toynbee was the author of the twelve-volume A Study of History (1934-61). Toynbee presented the rise and fall of civilizations as a global rhythm or cycle of challenge and response. He identified the breakdown of civilizations with the loss of creative energy in the “creative minorities”, which lead to a loss of social unity.

Many historians are critical of Toynbee's use of myth and metaphor alongside factual data.

Arnold J. Toynbee quotes ~
• “A city that outdistances man's walking powers is a trap for man.”
• “Apathy can be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can only be aroused by two things: first, an ideal, with takes the imagination by storm, and second, a definite intelligible plan for carrying that ideal into practice.”
• “As human beings, we are endowed with freedom of choice, and we cannot shuffle off our responsibility upon the shoulders of God or nature. We must shoulder it ourselves. It is our responsibility.”
• “Civilization is a movement and not a condition, a voyage and not a harbor.”
• “History is a vision of God's creation on the move.”
• “I can not think of any circumstances in which advertising would not be an evil.”
• “The extinction of race consciousness as between Muslims is one of the outstanding achievements of Islam, and in the contemporary world there is, as it happens, a crying need for the propagation of this Islamic virtue.”
• “The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.”
• “The equation of religion with belief is rather recent.”

George Macaulay Trevelyan
b. 2-16-1876; Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England
d. 7-21-1962; Cambridge

Historian G. M. Trevelyan's writings espoused that the common people had a more positive effect on history than did royalty and that democratic government would bring about steady social progress. He held the Regius Professor Modern History at Cambridge, and the great-nephew of historian Thomas Babington Macaulay.

George Macaulay Trevelyan quotes ~
• “[Education] has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.”
• “Socrates gave no diplomas or degrees, and would have subjected any disciple who demanded one to a disconcerting catechism on the nature of true knowledge.”
• “We are the children of the earth and removed from her our spirit withers.”
