#Quote – Ralph Waldo Emerson

QuotesnSayingsIcon..most men have bound their eyes with one or another handkerchief, and attached themselves to some one of these communities of opinion. This conformity makes them not false in a few particulars, authors of a few lies, but false in all particulars. Their every truth is not quite true. Their two is not the real two, their four not the real four; so that every word they say chagrins us, and we know not where to begin to set them right.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson – Self Reliance – 1841
