A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on generations, god, time, understanding, and world

There are not in the world at any one time more than a dozen persons who read and understand Plato:-never enough to pay for an edition of his works; yet to every generation these come duly down, for the sake of those few persons, as if God brought them written in his hand.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
