History repeats the rhyme…

This post from Seth Godin states ‘History doesn’t always repeat itself …but it usually rhymes’ – reminded me of lyrics in Paradise:

Everything melts into time,
As history repeats the rhyme.

Paradise (listen + read more here)


Digging deeper it seems to be an old quote, seemingly mis-attributed to Mark Twain.  Either way, it’s interesting – when I wrote the song back in the 90s I’d never heard of the quote, just liked the sound of time + rhyme 🙂
