“The time-worn yoke of their opinions”


He who should inspire and lead his race must be defended from travelling with the souls of other men, from living, breathing, reading, and writing in the daily, time-worn yoke of their opinions.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1860

From the essay “The Conduct of Life”
