Emerson, Education: “The truth takes flesh in forms that can express it.”
It is only my assertion that makes what I have achieved possible.
I do not create the gifts–but see them, and the seeing is my responsibility.
“We learn nothing rightly until we learn the symbolical character of life.”
“A man is a little thing whilst he works by and for himself, but, when he gives voice to the rules of love and justice, is godlike….”
“Heaven often protects valuable souls charged with great secrets, great ideas, by long shutting them up with their own thoughts.”
only he “holds the key to his own secret.”
…mark how beautiful an order has sprung from the dust and blood of this fierce chaos! How the world as from a resurrection, balancing itself on the golden wings of knowledge and hope, has reassured its yet unwearied flight into the heaven of time. Listen to the music, unheard by outward ears, which is as a ceaseless and invisible wind nourishing its everlasting course with strength and swiftness.
I know my mark, and do course fluidly onward toward it, in it, and through it. My ideal, my value, is tremendous and invisible running through me, and I run through it. It is a sparkle, a glint, and I have always returned to its movement, a[?] dashed against it, for the greatest pleasure of truth. Now I am postponed–now I wait–now I continue to grow. Is it [she in magic?] that sees that I need this space–that I beyond the me that wants to [l?] and [s?] blend in touch? Well it isn’t known of how long it will last. ?? I more and most one and I must alone but this alone brings most with.??
