Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are nothing, but the light is all

From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures

The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent from a distant friendly party, but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The whole world burns and sparkles with light

To the dull mind all nature is leaden. To the illumined mind the whole world burns and sparkles with light.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The glory of friendship

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature is too thin a screen

Nature is too thin a screen; the glory of the omnipresent God bursts through everywhere.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Beauty is God's handwriting

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting — a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.

~ by Ralph Waldo Emerson

The whole world burns and sparkles with light

To the dull mind nature is leaden. To the illumined mind
the whole world burns and sparkles with light.

~ by Ralph Waldo Emerson

The whole world burns and sparkles with light

To the dull mind nature is leaden. To the illumined mind
the whole world burns and sparkles with light.

Te revealer of truth

The soul is the perceiver and revealer of truth.
