WHO SO WOULD BE ALI

Ralph Waldo Emerson

QUOTE:

Who so would be alive must be a nonconformist. We are afraid of truth, afraid of fortune, afraid of death and afraid of each other. ...Our arts, our occupations, our marriages, our religion, we have not chosen, but society has chosen for us. We are parlour soldiers. We shun the rugged battle of fate, where strength is born.
