Nature ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The charming landscape which I saw this morning is indubitably made up of some 20 or 30 farms. Miller owns this field, Locke that, and Manning the woodland beyond. But none of them owns the landscape. There is a property in the horizon which no man has but he whose eye can integrate all the parts, that is, the poet.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spring Quote ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spring is strong and virtuous,
Broad-sowing, cheerful, plenteous,
Quickening underneath the mold
Grains beyond the price of gold.
So deep and large her bounties are,
That one broad, long midsummer day
Shall to the planet overpay
The ravage of a year of war.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

April

The April winds are
magical, and thrill our
tuneful frames; the garden
walks are passionate to
bachelors and dames.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Heart

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life

Life consists in what a man is thinking all day. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson ~ Writing

The maker of a sentence launches out into the infinite and builds a road into Chaos and old Night, and is followed by those who hear him with something of wild, creative delight.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Summer

Do what we can, summer will have its flies. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
