Ralph Waldo Emerson

in a American poet and philosopher, founder of transcendentalism
Nature is thoroughly mediate. It is made to serve. It receives the dominion of man as meekly as the ass on which the Saviour rode.It offers all its kingdoms to man as the raw material which he may mould into what is useful. Man is never weary of working it up.More Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
