Ralph Waldo Emerson, comp. (1803–1882).  Parnassus: An Anthology of Poetry.  1880.
 
Foresight
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
(See full text.)

  NO man is the lord of any thing
Till he communicate his parts to others,
Nor doth he of himself know them for aught
Till he behold them formed in the applause
Where they are extended, which, like an arch, reverberates        5
The voice again; or like a gate of steel,
Fronting the sun, receives and renders back
His figure and his heart.
