A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Speak what you think now in hard words and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said today.  Ah, so you shall be misunderstood?  Is it so bad then to be misunderstood?  Pythagoras was misunderstoon, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh.  To be great is to be misunderstood.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
