A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

"I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work, but the solidest thing we know."

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on writing

in

My tongue is prone to lose the way,
Not so my pen, for in a letter
We have not better things to say,
But surely put them better.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Good-Bye

Good-bye, proud world! I'm going home:
Thou art not my friend, & I'm not thine.
Long through thy weary crowds I roam;
A river-ark on the ocean brine,
Long I've been tossed like the driven foam;
But now, proud world! I'm going home...

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on stars, music, life, and emerson

The House

...She lays her beams in music,
In music every ore,
To the candence of the whirling world
Which dances round the sun-
That so they shall not be displaced
By lapses or by wars,
But for the love of happy souls
Out live the newest stars.
