A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on ambition, art, character, genius, mistakes, poetry, pride, sensuality, talent, and truth

The peril of every fine faculty is the delight of playing with it for pride. Talent is commonly developed at the expense of character, and the greater it grows, the more is the mischief. Talent is mistaken for genius, a dogma or system for truth, ambition for greatest, ingenuity for poetry, sensuality for art.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
