|Ralph Waldo Emerson|
“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not been discovered.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882) was an American essayist, philosopher, and poet, best remembered for leading the Transcendentalist movement of the mid 19th century.
He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society.
