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

    In correct theology, the Virgin ought not to be represented in bed, for she could not suffer like ordinary women, but her palace at Chartres is not much troubled by theology, and to her, as empress-mother, the pain of child-birth was a pleasure which she wanted her people to share.
    —Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    Just as the French of the nineteenth century invested their surplus capital in a railway-system in the belief that they would make money by it in this life, in the thirteenth they trusted their money to the Queen of Heaven because of their belief in her power to repay it with interest in the life to come.
    —Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    And true, they are hurling spittle, rock,
    Garbage and fruit in Little Rock.
    And I saw coiling storm a-writhe
    On bright madonnas. And a scythe
    Of men harassing brownish girls.
    —Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
