    Springtime for Hitler and Germany,
    Winter for France and Poland.
    Mel Brooks (b. 1926)

    Henry B. Adams was the first in an infinite series to discover and admit to himself that he really did not care whether truth was, or was not, true. He did not even care that it should be proved true, unless the process were new and amusing. He was a Darwinian for fun.
    —Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
