Famous quotes containing the words ralph waldo emerson, ralph waldo, house, emerson and/or waldo:

    For we are not pans and barrows, nor even porters of the fire and torch-bearers, but children of the fire, made of it, and only the same divinity transmuted, and at two or three removes, when we know least about it.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It is a mischievous notion that we are come late into nature; that the world was finished a long time ago. As the world was plastic and fluid in the hands of God, so it is ever to so much of his attributes as we bring to it. To ignorance and sin, it is flint. They adapt to themselves to it as they may; but in proportion as a man has anything in him divine, the firmament flows before him and takes his signet and form.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The house of my body has spoken
    often as you rebuild me like blocks,
    and promise to come visit
    when I’m finally adjusted on safe land,
    and am livable, joist to joist
    with storm windows and screens ...
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    But, though light-headed man forget,
    Remembering Matter pays her debt:
    Still, through her motes and masses, draw
    Electric thrills and ties of Law,
    Which bind the strengths of Nature wild
    To the conscience of the child.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The most useful man in the most useful world, so long as only commodity was served, would remain unsatisfied. But, as fast as he sees beauty, life acquires a very high value.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
