A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on jesus, purity, and spirit

'Ah, so you shall be misunderstood.'- Is it so bad then to be misunderstood? Pythagorus was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
