Emerson rocks

Every rational person ask me have you read Emerson’s. Every inspirational author, famous book writer quote him once for not. He is one of the prodigy, he makes our heart feel and flow with his profound words. So these are some lines of Emerson from Alphonso of Castle. It means about the result and deserving nature of man and here it goes……..

Men and gods are too extense,—
Could you slacken and condense?
Your rank overgrowths reduce,
Till your kinds abound with juice;
Earth crowded cries, “Too many men,”
My counsel is, Kill nine in ten,
And bestow the shares of all
On the remnant decimal.
Add their nine lives to this cat;
Stuff their nine brains in his hat;
Make his frame and forces square
With the labors he must dare;
Thatch his flesh, and even his years
With the marble which he rears;
There growing slowly old at ease,
No faster than his planted trees,
He may, by warrant of his age,
In schemes of broader scope engage:
So shall ye have a man of the sphere,
Fit to grace the solar year.
