Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes
Showing: 161 - 170 Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes of 789

We are too civil to books. For a few golden sentences we will turn over and actually read a volume of four or five hundred pages.
What can we see, read, acquire, but ourselves. Take the book, my friend, and read your eyes out, you will never find there what 1 find.
Each man reserves to himself alone the right of being tedious.
