That Which Builds



“You admire this tower of granite, weathering the hurts of so many ages. Yet a little waving hand built this huge wall, and that which builds is better than that which is built. The hand that built can topple it down much faster. Better than the hand, and much nimbler,was the invisible thought which brought it into existence.”

 

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Eternal Enthusiasm



“Don’t walk around with a sense of self defeat and unending doubt. Cut the ties to these parasitic powers. The world, whether we like it or not, will already do that for us. It will automatically write us off, and ask us to prove the necessity of our existence and why we deserve attention and respect. Why then, should we write ourselves off automatically, forfeiting before we have begun? Write in your name first on the internal list of eternal enthusiasm.”

-E.R. Hughes

“There is guidance for all of us and by lowly listening we shall hear the right word.”

“There is a certain wisdom of humanity which is common to the greatest an as with the lowest and which our ordinary education often labors to silence and obstruct.”

“We are wiser than we know, do the thing and you shall have the power. Do not the thing and have not the power.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
