When it comes to inspirational quotes, it doesn't get much better than American essayist, philosopher, poet, and leader of the Transcendentalist movement, Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Below are five of our favorite Emerson quotes:1. "Your own mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except by your permission."
2. "Finish each day and be done with it...You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely."
3. "Man was born to be rich, or grow rich by use of his faculties, by the union of thought with nature. Property is an intellectual production. The game requires coolness, right reasoning, promptness, and patience in the players."
4. "The secret of ugliness consists not in irregularity, but in being uninteresting."
5. "Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen."
