    Humanity easily forgets

    Hello everyone I am looking for a statement or phrase that might be used that humanity easily forgets of the mistakes of the past.

    Perhaps some ancient saying about the value of understanding what history taught us might be helpful too.

    I would like to thank you in advance for your help.

    Best Regards
    Alex
