A collection of Famous poets and writers and their books.
Works Of Ralph Waldo Emerson
Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string. To be great is to be misunderstood. To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. The earth laughs in flowers. A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind. For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air. For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
Edgar Allan Poe
And so being young and dipped in folly I fell in love with melancholy. Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality. Never to suffer would never to have been blessed. Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see. I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched. All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream. Science has not yet taught us if madness is or is not the sublimity of the intelligence. With me poetry has not been a purpose, but a passion.
The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence. You have to die a few times before you can really live. There is a place in the heart that will never be filled a space and even during the best moments and the greatest times times we will know it we will know it more than ever there is a place in the heart that will never be filled and we will wait and wait in that space.
