i wish tumblr had an option where you could reply privately to anonymous messages so the sender still remains unknown but you dont have to post it publically
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
Ralph was one of the first philosophers I read. I’m grateful for what he taught me, especially his concept of self-reliance, which inspired me on later years, to become an independent free spirit and to think for myself.(via sageofreflection)
