Abelard quote ~
• “We call the intention good which is right in itself, but the action is good, not because it contains within it some good, but because it issues from a good intention. The same act may be done by the same man at different times. According to the diversity of his intention, however, this act may be at one time good, at another bad.”
Heloise quote ~
• “Riches and power are but gifts of blind fate, whereas goodness is the result of one's own merits.” Letters

Henry Adams
b. 2-16-1838; Boston, MA
d. 3-27-1918; Washington, DC

Journalist Henry Adams, Professor of Medieval History at Harvard, is most remembered for his introspective autobiography The Education of Henry Adams where he concluded that traditional classical education failed to prepare him for the scientific and technological 20th century. Education won the 1919 Pulitzer Prize.

Henry Adams quotes ~
• “No man likes to have his intelligence or good faith questioned, especially if he has doubts about himself.”
• “Nothing in education is so astonishing as the amount of ignorance as it accumulates in the form of inert facts.”
• “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”
• “Chaos often breeds life when order breeds habit.”
• “Man is an imperceptible atom always trying to become one with God.”
• “I have written too much history to have faith in it; and if anyone thinks I'm wrong, I am inclined to agree with him.”
