A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on chance, conceit, defeat, facts, ignorance, insanity, learning, moderation, and skill

When a man is pushed, tormented, defeated, he has a chance to learn something; he has been put on his wits; on his manhood; he has gained the facts; learns his ignorance; is cured of the insanity of conceit; has got moderation and real skill.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
