Things Ralph Waldo Emerson Said

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

"The ancestor of every action is a thought."

"None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone."

"People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character."

I think I would have liked him.
