Adapted

Famous quotes containing the word adapted:

    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)

    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)

    One ought not to hoard culture. It should be adapted and infused into society as a leaven. Liberality of culture does not mean illiberality of its benefits.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
