Ralph Waldo Emerson
“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.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Complete Prose Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson

Colson Whitehead
“Life! What Inscrutable Card Shall Ye Throw Next Upon the Soft Felt of Our Days?”
