"We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related, the eternal ONE. And this deep power in which we exist and whose beatitude is all accessible to us, is not only self-sufficing and perfect in every hour, but the act of seeing and the thing seen, the seer and the spectacle, the subject and the object, are one. We see the world piece by piece, as the sun, the moon, the animal, the tree; but the whole, of which these are shining parts, is the soul."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. Beautiful words to ponder today!

    Ugh... can't make out the captcha today. It gets more obscure every day. How can a 3 and a 1 look so similar?

  2. Ah Emerson!

    Ugh captcha !

  3. Ahhhh...this reminds me of my thesis at the uni. I compared several Emerson poems with Thoreau's he he...but don't ask me anything about them 'coz I've completely forgotten ha ha ha ha...

    LOVE the pic! I'm on the mend, but still not 100% recovered yet. Slowly but surely, though. :-)
