A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on eternity, fame, god, literature, names, reputation, risk, and science

When God lets loose a great thinker on this planet, then all things are at risk. - There is not a piece of science, but its flank my be turned to-morrow; nor any literary reputation, nor the so-called eternal names of fame, that may not be revised and condemned.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
