I apologize for the = signs scattered in the quote and for not crediting as the source of the quote.

One more time (if this does not work, I give up):

Adam and Noah were ancestors of mine. I never thought much of them. Adam lacked character. He couldn't be trusted with apples. Noah had an absurd idea that he could navigate without any knowledge of navigation, and he ran into the only shoal place on earth.
- speech 9 November 1901. Reported in The New York Times, 10 November 1901
