That reminds me of two quotations:

.....Immortality. I notice that as soon as writers broach this question they begin to quote. I hate quotation. Tell me what you know.
..........— Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), US essayist & poet. Journal (May 1849). NOTE: 10,000 websites to the contrary, Emerson, to my knowledge, never said, "I hate quotations," or "I hate quotes." He was speaking on the topic of immortality. Personally, I love quotations, especially about immortality; since I know nothing about it.

The other is from possible my favorite book of the Bible, Ecclesiastes.

.....Only that shall happen Which has happened, Only that occur Which has occurred; There is nothing new Beneath the sun!
..........Ecclesiastes chapter 1 verse 9, TaNaKh, Jewish Publication Society, 1985.
