    As we know,
    There are known knowns.
    There are things we know we know.
    We also know
    There are known unknowns.
    That is to say
    We know there are some things
    We do not know.
    But there are also unknown unknowns,
    The ones we don't know
    We don't know.

    Those who dont learn from the past are doomed to repeat It.

    I don't know this Santayana chap too well but I assume he wasn't the type to capitalize every word.
