Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes
Showing: 421 - 430 Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes of 789
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.
Among provocatives, the next best thing to good preaching is bad preaching.
Go into one of our cool churches, and begin to count the words that might be spared, and in most places the entire sermon will go.
The sermon which I write inquisitive of truth is good a year after, but that which is written because a sermon must be writ is musty the next day.
The vanishing, volatile froth of the Present which any shadow will alter, any thought blow away, any event annihilate, is every moment converted into the Adamantine Record of the Past.
We can see well into the past; we can guess shrewdly into the future; but that which is rolled up and muffled in impenetrable folds is today.
With the Past, as past, I have nothing to do; nor with the Future as future. I live now, and will verify all past history in my own moments.
If a man own land, the land owns him. Now let him leave home, if he dare.
