Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25 1803 – April 27 1882)
All our progress is an unfolding, like the vegetable bud. You have first an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge, as the plant has root, bud, and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason. It is vain to hurry it. By trusting it to the end it shall ripen into truth, and you shall know why you believe.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882)
