Words and Pictures: A sort of vantage

Posted April 26, 2020 by Lory in quotes / 0 Comments

Our affection towards others creates a sort of vantage or purchase which nothing will supply. I can do that by another which I cannot do alone. I can say to you what I cannot say to myself. Other men are lenses through which we read our own minds.

Ralph Waldo Emerson,
Representative Men (1850)
