Dagens citat vol XII – Ralph Waldo Emerson

To go into solitude, a man needs to retire as much from his chamber ber as from society. I am not solitary while I read and write, though nobody is with me. But if a man would be alone, let him look at the stars. The rays that come from those heavenly worlds, will separate between him and vulgar things. One might think the atmosphere was made transparent with this design, to give man, in the heavenly bodies, the perpetual presence of the sublime. Seen in the streets of cities how great they are! If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of god which has been shown! But every night come out these envoys of beauty, and light the universe with their astonishing smile.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
