in my restlessness-and-depression-induced project-organization madness yesterday, i rediscovered ralph waldo emerson. first of all, what he did with his life is fascinating. and, conveniently, he thought and said truly enormous things that can be presented in small quotation packages. so i think he should have his own day. wednesdays on my blog shall be known hereafter as “ralph waldo wednesdays.”
“the purpose of life is not to be happy. it is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."
