A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on extremism, friendship, good, thankfulness, and universe

I am thankful for small mercies. I compared notes with one of my friends who expect everything of the universe, and is disappointed when anything is less than the best, and I found that I begin at the other extreme, expecting nothing, and am always full of thanks for moderate good. . . . If we will take the good we find, . . . we shall have heaping measures. . . .

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
