These Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes are quite interesting.

I have included these quotes by Emerson thinking that you might find them useful for your scrapbooking, altered books, art, greeting cards or journals.

ralph waldo emerson quotes

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

A chief event of life is the day in which we have encountered a mind that startled us.

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting -- a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.

The reward of a thing well done, is to have done it.

To fill the hour - that is happiness.

Few people have any next, they live from hand to mouth without a plan, and are always at the end of their line.

What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not been discovered.

It requires a great deal of boldness and a great deal of caution to make a great fortune, and when you have it, it requires ten times as much skill to keep it.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.

We boil at different degrees.

No one can cheat you out of ultimate success but yourself.

ralph waldo emerson quotes
on friends and friendship

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship.

The only way to have a friend is to be one.

The only reward of virtue is virtue; the only way to have a friend is to be one.

Go oft to the house of thy friend, for weeds choke the unused path.

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.

Self-trust is the first secret to success.

There is a tendency for things to right themselves.

It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, 'Always do what you are afraid to do.'

In skating over thin ice, our safety is in our speed.

The secret of ugliness consists not in irregularity, but in being uninteresting.

Ralph Emerson wrote extensively so there are lots of Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes on various subjects. The above quotations are just some I myself like alot and think they are great for our journalling in scrapbooks, handmade cards, and altered arts.
