A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on diet, life, needs, and wishes

I do not wish to expiate, but to live. My life is for itself and not for a spectacle. I much prefer that it should be of a lower strain, so it be genuine and equal, then that it should be glittering and unsteady. I wish it to be sound and sweet, and not to need diet and bleeding.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
