Ralph Waldo Emerson Quote – “This sentiment is divine and deifying…”

This sentiment is divine and deifying. It is the beatitude of man. It makes him illimitable. Through it, the soul first knows itself. It corrects the capital mistake of the infant man, who seeks to be great by following the great, and hopes to derive advantages from another — by showing the fountain of all good to be in himself, and that he, equally with every man, is an inlet into the deeps of Reason… then, deep melodies wander through his soul from Supreme Wisdom.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)
