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

    The gothic is singular in this; one seems easily at home in the renaissance; one is not too strange in the Byzantine; as for the Roman, it is ourselves; and we could walk blindfolded through every chink and cranny of the Greek mind; all these styles seem modern when we come close to them; but the gothic gets away.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    The spring is here, young and beautiful as ever, and absolutely shocking in its display of reckless maternity; but the Judas tree will bloom for you on the Bosphorus if you get there in time. No one ever loved the dog-wood and Judas tree as I have done, and it is my one crown of life to be sure that I am going to take them with me to heaven to enjoy real happiness with the Virgin and them.
    —Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    No European spring had shown him the same intermixture of delicate grace and passionate depravity that marked the Maryland May.
    —Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    Practical politics consists in ignoring facts.
    —Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
