“Young men of the fairest promise, who begin life upon our shores, inflated by the mountain winds, shined upon by all the stars of God, find the earth below not in unison with these,but are hindered from action by the disgust which the principles on which business is managed inspire, and turn drudges, or die of disgust,some of them suicides.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“When your dreams tire, they go underground
and out of kindness thats where they stay.”
