Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882) was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet who led the transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Nobody can bring you peace but yourself.
There are as many pillows of illusion as flakes in a snow-storm. We wake from one dream into another dream.
The fox has many tricks. The hedgehog has but one. But that is the best of all.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Truth is beautiful without doubt, but so are lies.
As we grow old the beauty steals inward.
The best effort of a fine person is felt after we have left their presence.
Who hears me who understands me becomes mine a possession for all time.
