10 Pieces of Philosophical Wisdom From Ralph Waldo Emerson
I read American essayist and transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson recently, and I really loved it. Below are a few of my favorite excerpts; I hope they move you as much as they moved me.
- “What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.”
- “The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.”
