The past is made of paper

“The past is made of paper … records, documents, newspaper stories, eyewitness reports, gossip and rumour and opinion and contradiction … if you’re after the truth, the whole and detailed truth and nothing but the truth you’re going to have a thin time of it if you trust paper; but with the past, it almost all you’ve got.” – Margaret Atwood
