Famous quotes by waldo emerson:

    Let the stoics say what they please, we do not eat for the good of living, but because the meat is savory and the appetite is keen.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Among the earliest institutions to be invented, if I read the stars right, is a Protestant monastery, a place of elegant seclusion where melancholy gentlemen and ladies may go to spend the advanced session of life in drinking milk, walking the woods & reading the Bible and the poets.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Thou art the unanswered question;
    Couldst see thy proper eye,
    Alway it asketh, asketh;
    And each answer is a lie.
    So take thy quest through nature,
    It through thousand natures ply;
    Ask on, thou clothed eternity;
    Time is the false reply.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    But man postpones or remembers; he does not live in the present, but with reverted eye laments to the past, or, heedless of the riches that surround him, stands on tiptoe to foresee the future. He cannot be happy and strong until he too lives with nature in the present, above time.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    If with love thy heart has burned;
    If thy love is unreturned;
    Hide thy grief within thy breast,
    Though it tear thee unexpressed.
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
