Here are my favorite thought-provoking and often poetic Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes. He was a very influential writer and lecturer in the 1800's who pushed people to think differently. Perhaps he will change the way you see things as well.
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."
"For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness."
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
"Always do what you are afraid to do."
"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail."
"Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air."
“The man who renounces himself, comes to himself.”
