If You Are A Quote Lover, part 1

I like the silent church before the sermon begins, better than any preaching. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

In high school, we had to memorize a bunch of Emerson quotes from the essay “Self-Reliance.” This is the single line that stuck with me since I first read his words 11 years ago.
