Emerson Thinks You Should Slow Down

“Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

emerson adopt the pace of nature

“It is so easy to bestow on a bad boy a blow, overpower him, and get obedience without words, that in this world of hurry and distraction, who can wait for the returns of reason and the conquest of self; in the uncertainty too whether that will ever come?… Leave this military hurry and adopt the pace of Nature. Her secret is patience… Can you not baffle the impatience and passion of the child by your tranquillity? Can you not wait for him, as Nature and Providence do?… He has a secret; wonderful methods in him; he is,—every child,—a new style of man; give him time and opportunity.” from Emerson’s essay Education

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
