I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and new.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
More quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
I suffer whenever I see that common sight of a parent or senior imposing his opinion and way of thinking and being on a young soul to which they are totally unfit. Cannot we let people be themselves, and enjoy life in their own way? You are trying to make that man another you. One’s enough.
More quotes about Wisdom
If thou art clean and warm, it is sufficient; for more doth but rob the Poor, and please the Wanton.
We meet on the broad pathway of good faith and good will; no advantage shall be taken on either side, but all shall be openness and love. I will not call you children, — for parents sometimes chide their children too severely; nor brothers only, — for brothers differ. The friendship between me and you I will not compare to a chain; for that the rains might rust, or the falling tree might break. We are the same as if one man’s body were to be divided into two parts, we are all one flesh and blood.
No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if you’re playing a solo game, you’ll always lose out to a team.
