This book also contains, "Literary Ethics," "Man the Reformer," "The American Scholar," "The Conservative" & "The Transcendentalist. Excerpt: "Man is timid and apologetic; he is no longer upright; he dares not say 'I think, ' 'I am, ' but quotes some saint or sage. He is ashamed before the blade of grass or the blowing rose. These roses under my window make no reference to former roses or to better ones; they are for what they are; they exist with God today."
