Sept. 13: Thought of the day

" A man dismisses without notice his thoughts, because it is his. In every work of genius, we recognize our own rejected thoughts. They come back to us with a certain alienated majesty. A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within. Otherwise, tomorrow a stranger will say with masterly good sense precisely what we have thought and felt all the time, and we shall be forced to take our own opinion from another with shame splashed over our faces." -- Emerson
