A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on alienation, certainty, genius, learning, mind, and work

A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within. . . . In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts; they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
