Ralph was a smart guy! Very true words.

'A confession of character' - I like that -

It seems that character is missing in so many these days. Who knew that even in Emerson's day, it was an issue.

Great quote OP! Thanks for sharing and reminding us.

I was surprised just how many quotes - excellent, too - are attributed to Emerson. Smart fella!

Those are steel folding chairs. They are used only for wrestling matches any more because they are heavier and more expensive than plastic chairs. A wrestler would look awfully wimpy swinging a plastic chair at his opponent. I think people would laugh when it goes "thwack" instead of "clunk".
