This was the battle started with the “shot heard ‘round the world” as Ralph Waldo Emerson observed.
I agree with Ralph Waldo Emerson that if you do not try something thing that you have not mastered then you will never grow. If you do not get out of your comfort zone you will never know what other things you can do in life or how much potential you have. First, I was going to take auto mechanics at btec cause I was already a mechanic before so I knew what to do I was just going to see if I could learn some new stuff. Then they decided to put me in the other class i singed up for which was welding and I have never welded in my life before. So I decided to stay in welding which was fun and now I am about to go into my third year of welding. So when they singed me up for welding I was scared cause I thought I was going to do terrible

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character." This quote is a belief that your beliefs show innermost self. Emerson believes that your thoughts and ideas of the world reflect your true self. I agree that your mental outlook of the world is a representation of your real character. Regardless of whether or not you expressed those thoughts and ideas out loud, they still show your true colors. Opinions are just another way of showing the world who you really are. Your attitude on the certain topics and people, marks your stance on the world and show your true beliefs.
I have to disagree with Ralph Emerson's quote witch states "unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow."(Ralph, Waldo Emerson).In todays medical filed there are thoses who are trained specialist that have masteredthere specifi medical filed and only focus on that medical filed as a profession and nothing else. another example is in our society. There are those who mastered a certain skill and are able to make a living off of it. In todays society there are some illness that a simple doctor can not treat, therefore we have trained specialist who have mastered a single medical filed to help teat those who are in need of there assistance. Say that you start to develop a rash, who would
Author Ralph Waldo Emerson once sad " Unless you try something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow". On past experiences in my life I would agree with Emerson because one will never truly master something but people everyday have said people have mastered a sport or a instrument but everyday that person practices on that one thing all the time. Look at some great sports players like Messi or Stephen Curry both are spectacular at what they do. Messi was looked at by many people when he was young at not able to play due to how short and small he was. He started to practice on end to help him get to a point where a small soccer team picked him up and play for them at this point he wasn't done so he got even better and now competes with some of the other worlds best
As a world, people follow those who they can relate with. Humans are drawn to the
During the Transcendentalist movement, Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote in his booklet, Nature, gave a lot of insight on the identity of the human race. His quote, “A man is a god in ruins” indicates a sense of the “fallen” nature, and really emphasizes our faults and our limits, and many authors during this time person also seemed to follow this philosophy. In Ralph Waldo Emerson’s other work, Self-Reliance, he is also able to capture this same essence from text to text. In addition to Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Herman Melville all follow the same philosophy in their own respective texts. The reader is able to see a common theme consistently throughout Self-Reliance, Economy (in Walden), The Artist of the Beautiful and Bartleby the Scrivener and Benito Cereno. Throughout each of these texts, the reader essentially focuses on how the nature of the human race focuses on how we are more than ordinary stone ruins, but we are lesser than Gods. The optimism of Emerson’s quote exploring the nature of the human person is depicted in their own way and different writing style throughout all of these different texts.
Emerson's "transcendentalism" is essentially a romantic individualism, a philosophy of life for a new people who had overthrown their colonial governors and set about conquering a new continent, in hopes of establishing new and unique views. Though Emerson is not a traditional philosopher, the tendency of his thought is toward inward reflection in which soul and intuition, or inspiration, are fundamental. The new American needed less criticism and a rejuvenated sense of personal inspiration. Taking a practical and democratic, yet philosophic interest in all of nature and in individuals of every walk of life. Emerson stresses the potential for genius and creativity in all
Ralph Waldo Emerson was a man who believed in self-trust which is mentioned in one of his readings “Self-Reliance”. “Self-Reliance” is in favor of nurturing thyself and keeping the mind active in questioning the much larger force where self-reliance is uncovered. Some perceive Emerson as someone who challenges the limitations of society and the human norms we use thought-out our daily lives. Could we really say he was naïve? Better yet, he was misunderstood for being a visionary who saw self-worth in himself, everything and everyone which is hard to understand for some. Emerson shouldn’t be considered naïve because he encourages individualism, avoiding conformity in society and finding your own way of living.
To be a conformist is to march to the beat of your own trumpet. In Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote, he is saying that you will have a much better life if you are individualistic and do what makes you happy. A good example of this in today's culture is Miley Cyrus, she has most definitely done what make her happy for herself. Most people thought that Miley would continue as the girl she was in the show “Hannah Montana”, but that was just a character for her. Miley has done a lot of things that most people consider crazy, but she is doing what makes herself happy and not trying to please others.
I agree with Ralph Waldo Emerson that "unless you try to do something beyond what you know have already mastered,you will never grow."because if you really think about it you would not be the same person you are now if you did not try new things. Not know that unless you have tried it . So you need it, like life is a game and you are the main piece to the game if you do not move that piece you do not know how the game go .And you know when you trouble your parents find out bout it and you try to blame it on some one else.And say you can not blame it on them it is your own fault take responsibility for you self.Evenif it is really there fault but that is the way life work. but it all about living life if you do not try
Ralph Waldo Emerson&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;&#9;I am writing this essay on the beliefs and thoughts of Ralph Waldo Emerson on the subjects of individuality, society, government, technology, and spirituality.
Many people push themselves to the mastery of a single skill or knowledge of a single subject. They train or study to earn their doctorates, or win the championship, or win the gold medal. However, what happens after the Swiss diver goes on to win the gold? In most cases, they sit comfortably at the top of their field. Most masters of their skills usually refrain from activities outside of their comfort zone. However not all "masters" believe in this stagnant way of life. Author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow," which perfectly illustrates what society should strive toward to give a new perspective of life and grow. Now I understand some peoples disagreements
Ralph Waldo Emerson in his essay “Self-Reliance” focused on individualism and to trust the intuition of oneself by being original and not imitating anyone. In doing so an individual will have the confidence to speak their inner belief and follow their own gut feelings without any fear, suggesting that the inner voice that talks within should not be ignored, instead it should be spoken in a belief that it will be accepted universally. This relates to Herman Melville’s story “Bartleby the Scrivener” where Bartleby, a main character is looked as an individual who follows his intuition and does not care what his boss and coworkers thought, he did what his gut feelings told him to do, which made him seem unconventional. In
