No book has worth by itself, but by the relation to what you have from many other books, it weighs.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I unsettle all things.
Our admiration of the antique is not admiration of the old, but of the natural.
The truth the hope of any time must always be sought in minorities.
Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.
For all our penny-wisdom, for all out soul-destroying slavery to habit, it is not to be doubted that all men have sublime thoughts.
