Self Reliance

The essay titled Self Reliance by an American philosopher named Ralph Waldo Emerson is just sooo inspiring. I just read it and it was successfully impressed me. It is powerful, deep, and very philosophical book with the timeless wisdom from the writer. Emerson's way with words is undeniably extraordinary. However, the grammar is extremely confusing, and I believe that you can not understand the meaning of book with only once read - I did. It is hard to take the red line. Emerson's Self Reliance teaches us to trust ourselves. By reading this essay we can look deeper inside ourselves and challenge us to be our very best. The point is: Be true to yourself! No shit. If you want to read it, well, beware. It gives side effect; frustrating mindset. However, for you guys who love philosophy and literature, you'll enjoy it hehehe... Happy reading!

Always do what you are afraid to do. Ralph Waldo Emerson
