Some Emerson for your Sunday…

•To go into solitude, a man needs to retire as much from his chamber as from society.

•Nature never wears a mean appearance.

•In the presence of nature a wild delight runs through the man,in spite of real sorrows.

•A nobler want of man is served by nature,namely,the love of Beauty.

•We are taught by great actions that the universe is the property of every individual in it.

•Nature is a sea of forms…

•The  creation of a thousand forest is in one acorn.

•The eye is the first circle;the horizon which it forms is the second.

•Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful for beauty is God’s handwriting.

•What is a weed? A plant whose virtue have never been discovered.(my fave)
