THE business of philosophy is to circumnavigate human
How often one finds in life, that an idea, which one may have met in youth, made visible in words, but also veiled in them, and which in this shape has haunted one with a vague sense of something divine, but dim and inscrutable, becomes, at the call of conscience, or when real events and beings give it its fit body, the open aspect of a messenger from Heaven, and the familiar friend of all one's after days. Sterling.
We write from aspiration and antagonism as well as from experience. Emerson.
