Famous quotes containing the words henry brooks, brooks adams, adams, henry and/or brooks:

    Chaos was the law of nature; Order was the dream of man.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    At the utmost, the active-minded young man should ask of his teacher only mastery of his tools. The young man himself, the subject of education, is a certain form of energy; the object to be gained is economy of his force; the training is partly the clearing away of obstacles, partly the direct application of effort. Once acquired, the tools and models may be thrown away.
    —Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    We thinke that Paradise and Calvarie,
    Christs Crosse, and Adams tree, stood in one place;
    Looke, Lord, and finde both Adams met in me;
    As the first Adams sweat surrounds my face,
    May the last Adams blood my soule embrace.
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    The most considerable difference I note among men is not in their readiness to fall into error, but in their readiness to acknowledge these inevitable lapses.
    —Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    Then to know
    The hunched hells across the sea.
    —Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
