The Gospel of Emerson

A compilation of quotations from Emerson's works arranged under headings such as "Religion," "Soul," "Life of the Spirit," etc. It is filled with mystical-poetic nonsense. He believed in the moral sense, but considered it to be the voice of God within each of us. He was a defender of individualism. He opposed orthodox Christianity. He believed all things are moral.
