Adams Chronicles

Famous quotes containing the words adams and/or chronicles:

    An American Virgin would never dare command; an American Venus would never dare exist.
    —Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    Our medieval historians who prefer to rely as much as possible on official documents because the chronicles are unreliable, fall thereby into an occasionally dangerous error. The documents tell us little about the difference in tone which separates us from those times; they let us forget the fervent pathos of medieval life.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
