"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines."
Here is a relic from America’s foremost teacher Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Self Reliance is a must-read for anyone who wishes to grow a “backbone”.
There’s a reason why this book is free and the more time and effort I put into the book the more I was left dissatisfied. The author has no sense of course when writing sentences and to even begin to explain what is being conveyed is baffling….15
Profound thoughts from a profound man!55
The entire book made you think, compare and contrast, analyze and debate within yourself45
Essential for life55
Very relevant read for all of us in this time where we are afraid to have our own thoughts unless someone else has already voiced them.55
I see what he is getting at, but I find his grammar stilted, antiquated and hard to follow.35
waste of time. write like a normal human in normal english please15
I’m I teenager about to go to college and I think everyone my age should read this book. It’s short it’s message is clear despite being in old English and it really relates to a proper creed to live by.55
Wonderful read. However, I may not agree with everything but It definitely broadened my perspective. Bookmarks for days. I advise any man or women with strong sense of virtue to read; as well as those with little to none.35
Inspiring and very intellectual55
