Preparing for adult learning session on Emerson's great-almost painfully great-
essay "Experience." What happens when the world catches up and the inspiration gets a little dimmer? Some jewels that I have posted before...

"Life is not intellectual or critical, but Sturdy. It's chief good is for well mixed people who can enjoy what they find, without question.

To fill the hour,-that is happiness; to fill the hour and leave no crevice for a repentance or an approval.

To finish the moment, to find the journey's end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom."
