Ralph Waldo Emerson-Self Reliance Quotes

There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide

It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

Your goodness must have some edge to it, — else it is none
