Thirteenth-Century France

1. Henry Adams, who had in his ancestry
     two Presidents of the United States,
     says in his autobiography
     that one cannot get an education
     in modern America.

2. And the reason he gives is,
     that there is
     no unity of thought
     in modern America.

3. So he went to England
     and found that modern England
     is too much like America.

4. So he went to France
     and found that modern France
     is too much like England and America.

5. But in France, Henry Adams found
     that one could get an education
     in thirteenth-century France.

6. And he wrote a book concerning
     the Cathedral of Chartes
     and the Mount Saint-Michel,
     where he points out
     that there was unity of thought
     in thirteenth-century France.
