10 Quotes of Wisdom to change your life from: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson was a leader for the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century; it's important for us to go back and look at these classic philosophers writings. You may not agree with their way of thinking and just reading them allows us to search for our own meaning in life.

It's one thing to read or listen to a teacher and it's another thing to believe everything they say without studying and forming your own opinion. Remember, you are in charge of your own development and you are responsible for your own beliefs...

One powerful writing of Ralph Waldo Emerson is titled:  The Over-Soul ; which is worth the read to understand his beliefs in how the soul, mind, spirit and body are connected to the cosmos, God and others.

We are in a great time of change in the world and now more then ever it's important to empower yourself with knowledge, inspiration, practice and truth.

Love  you all! enjoy the quotes below and I encourage you to read them and ponder them for a moment asking yourself what they mean to you and how do the effect you physically, mentally and spiritually.

  • The purpose of life seems to be to acquaint a man with himself and whatever science or art or course of action he engages in reacts upon and illuminates the recesses of his own mind. Thus friends seem to be only mirrors to draw out and explain to us ourselves; and that which draws us nearer our fellow man, is, that the deep Heart in one, answers the deep Heart in another, -- that we find we have (a common Nature) -- one life which runs through all individuals, and which is indeed Divine. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.- Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • The only reward of virtue is virtue; the only way to have a friend is to be one. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • The highest compact we can make with our fellow is, -- ‘Let there be truth between us two forever more.’ - Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • A political victory, a rise in rents, the recovery of your sick, or return of your absent friend, or some other quite external event, raises your spirits, and you think good days are preparing for you. Do not believe it. Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Again, enjoy and I hope this helps find awareness in your life...
