A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on contemplation and meditation

There is a principle which is the basis of things, which all speech aims to say, and all action to evolve, a simple, quiet, undescribed, undescribable presence, dwelling very peacefully in us, our rightful lord: we are not to do, but to let do; not to work, but to be worked upon.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
