Inspirational Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honourable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Always do what you are afraid to do.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.

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

The only way to have a friend is to be one.

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.

Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world.

Treat a man as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he could be, and he will become what he should be.
