A Quote by Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American lecturer, poet, essayist, Transcendentalist.

Transcendentalism: an idealistic philosophical and social movement which developed in New England around 1836 in reaction to rationalism. Influenced by romanticism, Platonism, and Kantian philosophy, it taught that divinity pervades all nature and humanity, and its members held progressive views on feminism and communal living. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau were central figures.

For when we have doubts about our own self-worth.
Many lives, not just this tiny one, are made better because someone planted these flowers.
