What is that quote and who said it?

Help me out here… what was the specific quote… “What man learns from history is that man doesn’t learn from history” or something like that and who said it?

“Only when he no longer knows what he is doing, does the painter do good

I’ll eliminate one possibility right now:

It wasn’t me.

Well your quote doesn’t make any sense to me, but it reminded me of this one:

“Those who cannot remember the past are
condemned to repeat it.” George Santayana

Well, PCW’s quote makes sense to me, but I didn’t say it either, although I’ll be glad to take credit for it if you want.

“The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.” ~ Georg Wilhelm F. Hegel, according to Favorite Quotes

Thanks whitetho. I appreciate the research.
