Something Wonderful

Here. to inspire us all as we relax and recharge, is a thoughtful meditation on the power of the written word. I found it in my cherished copy of One Thousand Beautiful Things, which came to me from my beloved mom, Dorothy:


“Consider what you have in the smallest chosen library.
A company of the wisest and wittiest men that could be
picked out of all civil countries, in a thousand years,
have set in best order the results of their learning
and wisdom. The men themselves were hid and
inaccessible, solitary, impatient of interruption,
fenced by etiquette; but the thought which they
did not uncover to their bosom friend is here
written out in transparent words to us, the
strangers of another age.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
