Self-Reliance: It can mean two things to some people and it does to me. “Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles.” “Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string.” These are the two quotes I chose because they both mean something to me and helped me get what Emerson meant when he was writing.
The first quote is. “Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles.” This is th...
