Process

This section is used to display a randomized list of portals related to the History portal. If you wish to add a new selection to the article, use the following template:

{{Portal:History/Subportals/Layout
| image = image
| size = size of the image
| portal = the target portal
| quote = your quote
| speaker = the quote's speaker
}}

Added portals should already be noted in the {{History browsebar}} located at the top of the portal, as it contains all of the portals on historical topics. Added portals should be added to the next available slot, and the max= parameter on this section's {{Random portal component}} on the Portal should be incremented to reflect the change. Your addition should contain a (well-sourced) quote encapsulating the essence of the portal's topic.

For the old version, before this section was randomized, see this oldid and older versions of this page.

Schlacht am Weißen Berg C-K 063.jpg
War

"War is not a pathology that, with proper hygiene and treatment, can be wholly prevented. War is a natural condition of the State, which was organized in order to be an effective instrument of violence on behalf of society. Wars are like deaths, which, while they can be postponed, will come when they will come and cannot be finally avoided."
Philip Bobbitt

Crusades

"High ideas were besmirched by cruelty and greed, enterprise and endurance by a blind and narrow self righteousness, and the Holy War itself was nothing more than a long act of intolerance in the name of God, which is a sin against the Holy Ghost."

Austria-Hungary

"If you ask me what is my native country, I answer: I was born in Fiume, grew up in Belgrade, Budapest, Pressburg, Vienna and Munich, and I have a Hungarian passport; but I have no fatherland. I am a very typical mix of old Austria-Hungary: at once Magyar, Croatian, German and Czech; my country is Hungary, my mother tongue is German."

History of China

"No victory of arms, or tyranny of alien finance, can long suppress a nation so rich in resources and vitality. The invader will lose funds or patience before the loins of China will lose virility; within a century China will have absorbed and civilized her conquerors, and will have learned all the technique of what transiently bears the name of modern industry..."
