A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Well, most men have bound thier eyes with one or another handkerchief, and attached themselves to some one of these communities of opinion. This conformity makes them not false in a few particulars, author of a few lies, but false in all particulars. Thier every truth is not quite true. Thier two is not the real two, thier four is not the real four; so that every word they say chagrins us and we know not where to begin to set them right.
Meantime nature is not slow to equip us in the prison uniform of the party to which we adhere. We come to wear one cut of face and figure, and aquire, by degrees, the gentlest asinine expression.
