Ralph Waldo Emerson: Love, Life, & Greatness

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.”

“Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.”

“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.”

“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered.”

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

“Beauty without expression is boring.”

“Earth laughs in flowers.”

“In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.”

“He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.”

“Every artist was first an amateur.”

“For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.”

“There is an optical illusion about every person we meet.”

“To be great is to be misunderstood.”

“Who hears me, who understands me, becomes mine, a possession of all time.”

“Money often costs too much.”

“Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.”

“Before we acquire great power we must acquire wisdom to use it well.”

“Nothing external to you has any power over you.”

“With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now.”
