Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes
Showing: 411 - 420 Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes of 789

I like a man who likes to see a fine barn as well as a good tragedy.
Practice is nine-tenths.
Prayer as a means to effect a private end is theft and meanness.
Prayer is the contemplation of the facts of life from the highest point of view.
