Thought of the Day

From The Writer’s Almanac:

It’s the birthday of Ralph Waldo Emerson, born in Boston, Massachusetts (1803). He said, “Meek young men grow up in libraries, believing it their duty to accept the views, which Cicero, which Locke, which Bacon have given, forgetful that Cicero, Locke, and Bacon were only young men in libraries when they wrote those books.”

www.RWE.org has free access to the complete works of Ralph Waldo Emerson, as well as essays, letters, commentary and more.
