"History is more or less bunk."
Henry Ford expressed the same idea on various occasions and in various ways. The quote shown above comes from an interview with Charles N. Wheeler in the Chicago Tribune of 25 May 1916. Another way in which he sometimes expressed this was simply, "History is bunk."
Henry Ford (1863-1947) American founder of the Ford Motor Company
