black diamond

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on coal, power, civilization, and black diamond

Coal lay in ledges under the ground since the Flood, until a laborer with pick and windlass brings it to the surface. We may well call it black diamonds. Every basket is power and civilization. For coal is a portable climate.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
