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

    You seem to think that I am adapted to nothing but the sugar-plums of intellect and had better not try to digest anything stronger.... a writer of popular sketches in magazines; a lecturer before Lyceums and College societies; a dabbler in metaphysics, poetry, and art, than which I would rather die, for if it has come to that, alas! verily, as you say, mediocrity has fallen on the name of Adams.
    —Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    It’s a queer sensation, this secret belief that one stands on the brink of the world’s greatest catastrophe. For it means the fall of Western Europe, as it fell in the fourth century. It recurs to me every November, and culminates every December. I have to get over it as I can, and hide, for fear of being sent to an asylum.
    —Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    Where there are large powers with little ambition ... nature may be said to have fallen short of her purposes.
    —Sir Henry Taylor (1800–1886)

    A dryness is upon the house
    My father loved and tended.
    —Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
