Nobody can bring you peace
but yourself.

− Ralph Waldo Emerson


The world is all gates,
all opportunities,
strings of tension
waiting to be struck.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Piece of Perfection

Every particular in nature,
a leaf, a drop, a crystal, a moment of time
is related to the whole,
and partakes of the perfection of the whole.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson


Peace cannot be achieved through violence,
it can only be attained through understanding.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


It is not length of life,

but depth of life.

 – Ralph Waldo Emerson


Earth laughs in flowers.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


What lies behind you
and what lies in front of you,
pales in comparison
to what lies inside of you.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson
