A little consideration of what takes place around us every day would show us that a higher law than that of our will regulates events; that only in our easy, simple spontaneous action are we strong, and by contenting ourselves with obedience we become divine.
Place yourself in the middle of the stream of power and wisdom which flows into you as life, place yourself in the full center of that flood. Then you are without effort impelled to truth, to right and a perfect contentment. Then you put all gainsayers in the wrong. There you are the world, the measure of right, of truth, of beauty.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
