Adapted

Famous quotes containing the word adapted:

    In fact, words are well adapted for description and the arousing of emotion, but for many kinds of precise thought other symbols are much better.
    —J.B.S. (John Burdon Sanderson)

    Priests are not men of the world; it is not intended that they should be; and a University training is the one best adapted to prevent their becoming so.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    We are adapted to infinity. We are hard to please, and love nothing which ends: and in nature is no end; but every thing, at the end of one use, is lifted into a superior, and the ascent of these things climbs into daemonic and celestial natures.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
