¡Feliz Cumpleaños, George Santayana!

AKA Jorge Agustín Nicolás Ruiz de Santayana y Borrás.

Born December 16, 1863. Died September 26, 1952.

He was a Spanish American philosopher and author who wrote in English and who had been raised and educated in the United States of America. He was best known for his famous quotation “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

I actually made it through his most famous novel The Last Puritan and found it to be very interesting if not quite what I was expecting. It is a shame he did not write more such novels but I guess that was not to be.
