“I like the silent church before the service begins, better than any preaching” (Emerson, Self-Reliance).


“Whoso would be a man, must be a nonconformist. He who would gather immortal palms must not be hindered by the name of goodness, but must explore if it be goodness. Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind” (Emerson, Self-Reliance).
