Quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson


All mankind love a lover.

Freedom is not the right to do as you please, but the liberty to do as you should.

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

The reward of a thing well done is to have done it.

It is not the length of life, but depth of life.

A friend is one before whom I may think aloud


It is not length of life, but depth of life.
