The house of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Concord MA
Originally uploaded by pablo.sanchez
Emerson lived in this house from 1835 to 1882 and here is a quote of his that I like.
"We do not live an equal life, but one of contrast and patchwork; now a little joy, then a little sorrow, now a sin, then a generous or brave action."
When I was a child my uncle gave me some old editions of books written by Emerson and I have admired his writing and his character ever since. Emerson lived from 1803 to 1882.
