Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes



For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in, forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day, you shall begin it well and serenely

Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen

We must be our own before we can be another'sPeople do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character

We are always getting ready to live, but never living

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded

The only way to have a friend is to be one

What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm

We are wiser than we know

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better

Nothing external to you has any power over you

The Little Prince

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..."

"They don't find it," I answered.

"And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."

"Of course," I answered.

And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."
