Self-Reliance

Mentors - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"To Believe Your Own Thought, to believe that which is true for you in your private heart, is true for all men –that is genius."

There Is A Time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him, but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given him to till.
