Famous quotes by waldo emerson:

    Thou art the unanswered question;
    Couldst see thy proper eye,
    Alway it asketh, asketh;
    And each answer is a lie.
    So take thy quest through nature,
    It through thousand natures ply;
    Ask on, thou clothed eternity;
    Time is the false reply.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Every spirit makes its house, and we can give a shrewd guess from the house to the inhabitant.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We are by nature observers, and thereby learners. That is our permanent state.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    But wise men pierce this rotten diction and fasten words again to visible things; so that picturesque language is at once a commanding certificate that he who employs it, is a man in alliance with truth and God.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A just thinker will allow full swing to his skepticism. I dip my pen in the blackest ink, because I am not afraid of falling into my inkpot.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
