“The
narrative
historian
always
has
the
privilege
of
 deciding
that
continuity
cuts
better
into
certain
lengths
 than
into
others.
He
never
is
required
to
defend
his
cut,
 because
history
cuts
anywhere
with
equal
ease,
and
a
 good
story
can
begin
anywhere
the
teller
chooses.”

and
the



"It
is
the
relationship
among
things--rather
than
the
things
 themselves--that
gives
objects
their
identities.
Though
we
 tend
to
regard
them
as
having
stable
and
enduring
 characteristics,
the
determination
of
'thingness'
is
more
a
 matter
of
groupings
and
classifications
than
it
is
a
 consequence
of
inherent
material
properties.“
