"In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thought; they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty. Great works of art have no more affecting lesson for us than this. They teach us to abide by our spontaneous impression with good-humoured inflexibility than most when the whole cry of voices is on the other side. Else tomorrow a stranger will say with masterly good sense precisely what we have thought and felt all the time, and we shall be forced to take the shame of our own opinion from another." Ralph Waldo Emerson "Self-Reliance," 1844
These thoughts and ideas usually come when we have had a brief moment in the silence. Record them before they disappear like a mist at sunrise, as we emerge from the stillness. Help them grow, they may be the beginning of an amazing journey.
