Ralph Waldo

Famous quotes by ralph waldo:

    The rich results of the divine consents
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Before we acquire great power we must acquire wisdom to use it well.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A man must be clothed with society, or we shall feel a certain bareness and poverty, as of a displaced and unfurnished member. He is to be dressed in arts and institutions, as well as in body garments. Now and then a man exquisitely made can live alone, and must; but coop up most men and you undo them.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We say that every man is entitled to be valued by his best moment. We measure our friends so. We know, they have intervals of folly, whereof we take no heed, but wait the reappearings of the genius, which are sure and beautiful.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I have heard with admiring submission the experience of the lady who declared that the sense of being perfectly well dressed gives a feeling of inward tranquility which religion is powerless to bestow.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
