    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    This is something that I cannot get over—that a whole line could be written by half a man, that a work could be built on the quicksand of a character.

    We then entered another swamp, at a necessarily slow pace, where the walking was worse than ever, not only on account of the water, but the fallen timber, which often obliterated the indistinct trail entirely.

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
