Famous quotes containing the words adventure and/or modern:

    Happy a while in Paradise they lay;
    But quickly woman longed to go astray:
    Some foolish new adventure needs must prove,
    And the first devil she saw, she chang’d her love:
    To his temptations, lewdly she inclined
    Her soul, and, for an apple, damn’d mankind.
    Thomas Otway (1652–1685)

    I am not afraid of the priests in the long-run. Scientific method is the white ant which will slowly but surely destroy their fortifications. And the importance of scientific method in modern practical life—always growing and increasing—is the guarantee for the gradual emancipation of the ignorant upper and lower classes, the former of whom especially are the strength of the priests.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)
