“…as the earth lies in the soft arms of the atmosphere; that Unity, that Over-Soul, within which every individuals particular being is contained and made one with all other; that common heart, of which all sincere conversation is the worship, to which all right action is submission; that overpowering reality which confutes our tricks and talents, and constrains every one to pass for what they are; and to speak from their character, and not from their tongue, and which evermore tends to pass into our thought and hand, and become wisdom, and virtue, and power, and beauty…” -Ralph Waldo Emerson (The Over-Soul)
