Emerson's classic essays on "spiritual potential" and "self-reliance" can inspire
readers toward their own unique paths of self discovery.

He moves his audiences away from conformity, greed, and the pursuit of money
to seek peace, love, and beauty in nature and a soul.

('Waxing eloquent' was surely invented to describe his lengthy paragraphs.)

He did surprise me with "Experience." It is fairly bewildering, dense, and depressing:
"It is very unhappy, but too late to be helped, the discovery we have made that we exist."

It would be welcome to learn what life experiences influenced this enigmatic change. ( )

To read the essays is to fall into a lost world of beautiful sentences. The fact that anyone could have thought in such long, beautiful sentences that are both substantial and elegant is one thing; that we have the legacy to read now is nothing short of a miracle. ( )

(Note on the Author) Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82) was born in Boston, the son of a Unitarian minister who died when he was eight, leaving him and four other brothers to the care of their mother and aunt, in straitened circumstances.
(Introduction) It is said that Nietzsche never travelled without carrying a volume of Emerson's essays with him.
