Showing: 1 - 10 Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes of 789
Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it.
People only see what they are prepared to see.
A great man stands on God. A small man stands on a great man.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
One of the illusions of life is that the present hour is not the critical decisive hour. Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year. He only is right who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded by worry, fret and anxiety. Finish every day, and be done with it. You have done what you could.
To fill the hour,-that is happiness.
Commonsense is the wick of the candle.
All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.
Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly, and they will show themselves great.
