If the single man plant himself indomitably on his instincts, and there abide, the huge world will come round to him.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson,
        Of the American Scholar,
        in "Nature Addresses and Lectures"

If a man has good corn, or wood, or boards, or pigs to sell, or can make better chairs or knives, crucibles, or church organs, than anybody else, you will find a broad, hard-beaten road to his house, tho it be in the woods. And if a man knows the law, people will find it out, tho he live in a pine shanty, and resort to him. And if a man can pipe or sing, so as to wrap the prisoned soul in an elysium; or can paint landscape, and convey into oils and ochers all the enchantments of spring or autumn; or can liberate or intoxicate all people who hear him with delicious songs and verses, 'tis certain that the secret can not be kept: the first witness tells it to a second, and men go by fives and tens and fifties to his door.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Works (vol. VIII),
        in his "Journal" (1855) p, 528 (ed. 1912)
