promises

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on absence, business, facts, promises, speech, and world

The mark of the man of the world is absence of pretension. He does not make a speech; he takes a low business-tone, avoids all brag, is nobody, dresses plainly, promises not at all, performs much, speaks in monosyllables, hugs his fact.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
