Dagens visdomsord: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dagens visdomsord hämtar vi från en man som inspirerat många framgångsrika personer i generation efter generation. Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) var en av 1800-talets stora tänkare och mentor till en annan känd poet och författare, Henry David Thoreau.

Emersons mest kända verk är self-reliance från hans första diktsamling från 1841.

Här några av Ralph Waldo Emersons bästa citat:

1. Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect.

2. Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.

3. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

4. Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.

5. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.

6. Every man has his own courage, and is betrayed because he seeks in himself the courage of other persons.

7. For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of Peace of mind.

8. Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in Rising up every time we fail.

9. To be yourself in a World that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

10. It is easy in the World to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.
