Something Wonderful

A sprinkling of Ralph Waldo Emerson to enrich and enliven your day:

“Waves are inspiring not because they rise and fall, but because
each time the fall they never fail to rise again.”

“What I must do is all that concerns me, not what other people think.
This rule, equally arduous in actual and in intellectual life, may serve
for the whole distinction between greatness and meanness. It is harder
because you will always find those who think they know what is
your duty better than you know it. It is easy in the world to live
after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own;
but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with
perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.”

from Self-Reliance
