Nathaniel Hawthorne

“It is a good lesson - though it may often be a hard one - for a man... to step aside out of the narrow circle in which his claims are recognized, and to find how utterly devoid of significance, beyond that circle, is all that he achieves, and all he aims at.”


Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter
