That’s a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Emerson wrote on a number of topics, including; individuality, freedom, and the ability for mankind to realize almost anything… the relationship between the soul and the surrounding world.
Emerson’s “nature” series/essay was more philosophical than naturalistic.
He stated, “Philosophically considered, the universe is composed of Nature and the Soul”.
Ralph remains among the linchpins of the American romantic movement.
He is buried in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Concord, Massachusetts after passing away due to a six-day bout of pneumonia that he obviously succumbed to.
Sleepy Hollow is on my travel “to-do” list, along with revisiting Salem, MA… another of one of my favorite places! You read my blog post on Halloween surely?! 😉
