I’ve always had a pure love for the writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson. One of my favorite Ralph Waldo Emerson books is “Selected Writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson“. It’s filled with several life lessons that have contributed to the way I see the world today. Several of my favorite quotes are from Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes. This mornings Releasing Me Moments is dedicated to him. I hope you all enjoy this post. I know I’ll enjoy sharing them with you.
"Shallow men believe in luck, believe in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect." Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with and advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.”
“Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.”
“A great man is always willing to be little.”
“A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best; but what he has said or done otherwise shall give him no peace.”
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
“Every mind must make its choice between truth and repose. It cannot have both.”
“For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.”
“Men are what their mothers made them.”
“Make yourself necessary to somebody.”
“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.”
“Nobody can bring you peace but yourself.”
“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.”
“Who you are speaks so loudly I can’t hear what you’re saying.”
“There is no thought which is not seed as well as fruit.”
“God finds his perfection in himself; so must man.”
“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”
“Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a life’s cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another you have only and extemporaneous half possession… Do that which is assigned to you, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much.”
