"Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes"


+ Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

+ Every man I meet is in some way my superior; and in that I can learn of him.

+ Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.

+ Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

+ People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.

+ A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall.

+ Poetry teaches the enormous force of a few words, and, in proportion to the inspiration, checks loquacity.

+ Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.

+ Never read any book that is not a year old.

+ Most persons do not see the sun. At least they have a very superficial seeing. The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child. The lover of nature is he whose inward and outward senses are still truly adjusted to each other; who has retained the spirit of infancy even into the era of manhood. His intercourse with heaven and earth, becomes part of his daily food.

+ The reward of a thing well done, is to have done it.

+ Solvency is maintained by means of a national debt, on the principle, "If you will not lend me the money, how can I pay you?"

+ Do not yet see, that, if the single man plant himself indomitably on his instincts, and there abide, the huge world will come round to him.

+ Truth is handsomer than the affectation of love. Your goodness must have some edge to it, else it is none. The doctrine of hatred must be preached as the counteraction of the doctrine of love when that pules and whines.

+ Congratulate yourselves if you have done something strange and extravagant and broken the monotony of a decorous age.


+ Place yourself in the middle of the stream of power and wisdom which animates all whom it floats, and you are without effort impelled to truth, to right and a perfect contentment.
