Seth Godin and the folks at the Domino Project published this Emerson essay with asides by some of today's intriguing thought leaders. The essay itself is a surprisingly enlightened meditation on self-reliance, considering its age, and offers the contemporary reader assurance that life's challenges around self actualization are not unique. Some of the contemporary responses to excerpts fell flat for me, but overall they appropriately illuminated the meaning of the text.
