" A friend in power is a friend lost. "

Henry Adams
" Friends are born, not made. "

Henry Adams
" No man likes to have his intelligence or good faith questioned, especially if he has doubts about himself."

Henry Adams

Henry Adams

Henry Adams
" There is no such thing as an underestimate of average intelligence. "

Henry Adams
" During the Second World War, the Germans took four years to build the Atlantic Wall. On four beaches it held up the Allies for about an hour; at Omaha it held up the U.S. for less than one day. The Atlantic Wall must therefore be regarded as one of the greatest blunders in military history. "

Stephen Ambrose

Stephen Ambrose
" I am convinced that the world is not a mere bog in which men and women trample themselves in the mire and die. Something magnificent is taking place here amid the cruelties and tragedies, and the supreme challenge to intelligence is that of making the noblest and best in our curious heritage prevail. "

Charles Austin Beard
" You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence. "

Charles Austin Beard
" The significance of man is that he is insignificant and is aware of it. "

Carl Becker
" A well-written life is almost as rare as a well-spent one. "

Thomas Carlyle
" All men, if they work not as in the great taskmaster's eye, will work wrong, and work unhappily for themselves and for you. "

Thomas Carlyle
" Enjoy things which are pleasant; that is not the evil: it is the reducing of our moral self to slavery by them that is. "

Thomas Carlyle
" Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance but to do what lies clearly at hand. "

Thomas Carlyle
