“People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
When I was in high school, I was fascinated by the writers known as the transendentalists. To me to be a “writing movement” with ideas that formed an actually historical blip was amazing and I grew to enjoy RA Emmerson’s work. He ennoyed education as well as has an interesting, and I think unique view of the world and religion. I think it would have been interesting to talk with him for an evening. He had many thoughts directed at what makes a person a better person, as well as insights such as this one about a person’s character. I think he was on the mark here.
