A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on conformity, love, names, self-reliance, society, and virtue

Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members. . . . The virtue in most request is conformity. Self-reliance is its aversion. It loves not realities and creators, but names and customs.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
