Ralph Waldo Emerson

Self-Reliance

SELF RELIANCE is Emerson's famous work where he argues the need for each individual to avoid conformity and false consistency, and follow his or her own instincts and ideas. He was seen as a champion of individualism and critic of the prevailing pressures of society.

Quotes

    Miguel Castrohas quotedlast year
    To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men,--that is genius.

    Nothing to him falls early or too late.

    Our acts our angels are, or good or ill,

    Our fatal shadows that walk by us still."

    In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts: they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty.
