Famous Quotes

Self-trust is the essence of heroism
Famous Quotes – R W Emerson

  1. Nonsense!
    R. W. Emerson must have never done anything heroic.
    Heroism is not the absence of fear or lack of trust. Heroism is the experience of fear and little trust in anything, but not allowing those things to paralyze you.
    Heroism is not self awareness, but getting outside of self, away from self, so self will not freeze your muscles.
    I have long had a fear of dogs. I have to get outside myself, away from myself, so I can live a normal life.
    Sounds as if R. W. taught college classes on phylosophy and never had a days experience in the real world. Hope I am wrong.
