Charles Francis Adams II

1835 - 1915

A Quote by Charles Francis Adams II on aim, corruption, crime, failure, life, success, virtue, and wealth

Failure seems to be regarded as the one unpardonable crime, success as the all-redeeming virtue, the acquisition of wealth as the single worthy aim of life. The hair-raising revelations of skullduggery and grand-scale thievery merely incite others to surpass by yet bolder outrages and more corrupt combinations.
