I came across this quote from R.W. Emerson (1841, which is why I will ignore the use of only the word “man” 🙂 , while I’m thinking why I’m feeling insecure all the time when I don’t do what society expects of me, and recieve all kinds of comments from people who are not minding their own business:


“It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.”


Great quote!

Happy Christmas everyone!
