    He is a strong man who can hold down his opinion.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Every such truth is the absolute Ens seen from one side. But it has innumerable sides.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In miracles of pomp, we must be proud,
    As if associates of the sylvan gods.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Mankind have such a deep stake in inward illumination, that there is much to be said by the hermit or monk in defence of his life of thought and prayer.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I know what say the fathers wise,—
    The Book itself before me lies,
    Old Chrysostom, best Augustine.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
