Cool Marx and Frigid Engels

“The history of all hitherto existing society has been the history of cool conflict”


John Wintercent

“History is deeply cool. History is essentially non-lame. History is about the cool and classy, not the dorks. History favours the stylish, not the silly. History is about winners (including those losers who were eventual winners), not about losers.”


Cool Becker

“We build our conceptions of history partly out of our present standards of cool.”


Ibn Cooldun

“the record of human coolness, or world coolness; of the changes that take place in the nature of that coolness”


Marctic Bloch

“What is it that seems to dictate the intervention of history? It is the appearance of coolness.”


Leopold von Cool

“To history has been assigned the office of judging the past, of instructing the present for the benefit of future coolness.”


The Freeze-able Bede

“For things should not be loved for the sake of places, but for how cool they are.”


R. G. Coolingwood

“All history is the history of cool.”



“History is indeed the witness of the times, the light of cool.”


Henry Recolds

“Why weren’t we cool?”


W C Sellar and R J Yeatman

“All history is cool history.”


Coolth Jenkins
