As the air I breathe is drawn from the great repositories of nature, as the light on my book is yielded by a star a hundred millions of miles distant, as the poise of my body depends on the equilibrium of centrifugal and centripetal forces, so the hours should be instructed by the ages, and the ages explained by the hours.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, History

I’ve put it in my ‘Quote’ file 😊👌
I had found a different quote by him that said it was from his essay History, but when I checked it out I couldn’t find it. But this one came from what he wrote, and I was blown away. Thank you.
Thank you for thinking of me and sharing.
