• For the historian everything begins and ends with time, a mathematical, godlike
    time, a notion easily mocked, time external to men, 'exogenous,' as economists
    would say, pushing men, forcing them, and painting their own individual times
    the same color: it is, indeed, the imperious time of the world.

    Fernand Braudel (1982). “On History”, p.48, University of Chicago Press
