Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes

Earth laughs in flowers.~ For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.~Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage. ~To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.~Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you. ~What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.~ Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in, forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day, you shall begin it well and serenely...~Every man has his own courage, and is betrayed because he seeks in himself the courage of other persons.~To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. ~Little minds have little worries, big minds have no time for worries.~~~ Quotes are courtesy of http://thinkexist.com/quotes/ralph_waldo_emerson/Pictures are courtesy of Deviantart.com    In art the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can inspire.~
