Quotation by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
Every truth is a power. Every idea, from the moment of its emergence begins to gather material forces-- after a little while makes itself known. It works first on thoughts, then on things: makes feet and afterwards shoes; first hands, then gloves; makes men, and so the age and its material soon after. The history of the world is nothing but a procession of clothed ideas."
1803-1882 (Age at death: 79 approx.)
