More Quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson:


Wherever there is power there is age.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Consider what you have in the smallest well-chosen librarya company of the wisest and wittiest men which can be plucked out of all civilized countries in a thousand years. The men themselves were then hidden and inaccessible. They were solitary, impatient of interruption, and fenced by etiquette. But now they are immortal, and the thought they did not reveal, even to their bosom friends, is here written out in transparent words of light to us, who are strangers of another age.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

In the morning a man walks with his whole body; in the evening, only with his legs.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knowledge is an antidote to fear.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I do not hesitate to read. . . all good books in translations. What is really best in any book is translatable --any real insight or broad human sentiment.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Commit a crime and the earth is made of glass.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
