A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on birth, books, existence, personality, personality, quality, and talent

Talent alone cannot make a writer. There must be a man behind the book; a personality which, by birth and quality, is pledged to the doctrines there set forth, and which exists to see and state things so, and not otherwise.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
