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

    Each religious sect has its own physiognomy. The Methodists have acquired a face; the Quakers, a face; the nuns, a face. An Englishman will pick out a dissenter by his manners.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The world proceeds from the same spirit as the body of man. It is a remoter and inferior incarnation of God, a projection of God in the unconscious.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Somewhere between the overly intrusive parent and the parent who forgets about us after we’re out of the house is the ideally empathetic parent who recognizes the relativity of choice, the errors of his or her own way, and our need to find our own way and who can stay with us at a respectful distance while we do it.
    Roger Gould (20th century)

    Ever the words of the gods resound;
    But the porches of man’s ear
    Seldom in this low life’s round
    Are unsealed, that he may hear.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I am ashamed to see what a shallow village tale our so-called History is. How many times must we say Rome, and Paris, and Constantinople! What does Rome know of rat and lizard? What are Olympiads and Consulates to these neighboring systems of being? Nay, what food or experience or succor have they for the Esquimaux seal-hunter, or the Kanaka in his canoe, for the fisherman, the stevedore, the porter?
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
