A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

In silence we must warp much of our life, because it is too fine for speech, because also we cannot explain it to others, and because somewhat we cannot yet understand.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on decision, challenge, courage, and life

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to the end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories but it takes brave men and women to win them.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Don't waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on mistakes, errors, blunders, absurdities, forgiveness, and serenity

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
