Ralph Waldo Emerson


emerson book


“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense”.

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.”

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”

“I am ashamed to think how easily we capitulate to badges and names, to large societies and dead institutions.”

“I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.”

“The glory of the farmer is that, in the division of labors, it is his part to create. All trade rests at last on his primitive activity. He stands close to Nature; he obtains from the earth the bread and the meat. The food which was not, he causes to be. The first farmer was the first man, and all historic nobility rests on possession and use of land…”.

“Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string.”
