Famous quotes by waldo emerson:

    Lovers should guard their strangeness. If they forgive too much, all slides into confusion and meanness.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    History is full, down to this day, of the imbecility of kings and governors. They are a class of persons much to be pitied, for they know not what they should do.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Skepticism is unbelief in cause and effect. A man does not see, that, as he eats, so he thinks: as he deals, so he is, and so he appears; he does not see that his son is the son of his thoughts and of his actions; that fortunes are not exceptions but fruits; that relation and connection are not somewhere and sometimes, but everywhere and always; no miscellany, no exemption, no anomaly,—but method, and an even web; and what comes out, that was put in.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Shall we then judge a country by the majority, or by the minority? By the minority, surely. ‘Tis pedantry to estimate nations by the census, or by square miles of land, or other than by their importance to the mind of the time.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
