Famous quotes containing the words ralph waldo emerson, ralph waldo, house, emerson and/or waldo:

    GOETHE, raised o’er joy and strife,
    Drew the firm lines of Fate and Life,
    And brought Olympian wisdom down
    To court and mar, to gown and town,
    Stooping, his finger wrote in clay
    The open secret of to-day.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    All things are flowing, even those that seem immovable. The adamant is always passing into smoke. The plants imbibe the materials which they want from the air and the ground. They burn, that is, exhale and decompose their own bodies into the air and earth again. The animal burns, or undergoes the like perpetual consumption. The earth burns, the mountains burn and decompose, slower, but incessantly.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    The tendencies of the times favor the idea of self-government, and leave the individual, for all code, to the rewards and penalties of his own constitution, which work with more energy than we believe, whilst we depend on artificial restraints.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    An action is the perfection and publication of thought. A right action seems to fill the eye, and to be related to all nature.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
