Latest posted quotesby Ralph Waldo Emerson
There is a certain poverty in our critic. We assume that there are only few great men, and that the remaining are small; that there is only one Homer, only one Shakespeare, only one Newton, only one Socrates. But the soul, in its radiant hours, doesn't recognize these usurpations. We should know how to praise Socrates, or Plato, or St. John, without impoverishing.
