Ralph Waldo Emerson was the father of
Transcendentalism, he believed that nature was sacred and that it is very important for individuals to connect with nature. I love diving in further when I read quotes that really resonate with me. With Emerson, there are so many to love. The essay Self Reliance by Emerson talks further about his beliefs and worth a read!
Life consists in what a man is thinkin all day
Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door
This like all times, is a very good one, if we know what to do with it.
We acquire the strength we have overcome.
Do the thing we fear, and death of fear is nearly certain.
What you are comes to you.
Don’t be too timid and squeamish, about your actions. All life is an experiment.
Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.
The earth laughs in flowers.
We find delight in the beauty and happiness of children that makes the heart too big for the body.
Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.
Who you are speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you are saying.
It is not length of life, but depth of life.
Nobody can bring peace but yourself.
The only person that you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
