Literary Ethics...Ralph Waldo Emerson

Literary Ethics
by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be neither chided nor flattered out of your position of perpetual
inquiry. Neither dogmatize, nor accept another's dogmatism.
Why should you renounce your right to traverse the star-lit deserts
of truth, for the premature comforts of an acre, house, and barn?
~~Ralph Waldo Emerson..Literary Ethics you shall get your lesson out of the hour, and the object, whether
it be a concentrated or a wasteful employment, even in reading a dull book,
or working off a stint of mechanical day labor, which your necessities or
the necessities of others impose.
~~Ralph Waldo Emerson..Literary Ethics
