Famous quotes by waldo emerson:

    The mark of the man of the world is absence of pretension. He does not make a speech; he takes a low business-tone, avoids all brag, is nobody, dresses plainly, promises not at all, performs much, speaks in monosyllables, hugs his fact. He calls his employment by its lowest name, and so takes from evil tongues their sharpest weapon. His conversation clings to the weather and the news, yet he allows himself to be surprised into thought, and the unlocking of his learning and philosophy.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A more secret, sweet, and overpowering beauty appears to man when his heart and mind open to the sentiment of virtue. Then he is instructed in what is set above him. He learns that his being is without bound; that to the good, to the perfect, he is born, low as he now lies in evil and weakness.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    So forth and brighter fares my stream,—
    Who drink it shall not thirst again;
    No darkness stains its equal gleam,
    And ages drop in it like rain.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    So the gentle poet’s name
    To foreign parts is blown by fame;
    Seek him in his native town,
    He is hidden and unknown.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Fear is cruel and mean. The political reigns of terror have been reigns of madness and malignity,—a total perversion of opinion; society is upside down, and its best men are thought too bad to live.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
