He was an ordained minister, renowned orator, and beloved author and poet whose ideas on nature, philosophy, and religion influencedauthors such as Henry David Thoreau and Walt Whitman.

This soul-satisfying anthology oftwelve favorite essays is a treasure.
In the title essay, Emerson writes about the extraordinary power of nature as a way of bringing the divine into our lives. In "Gifts," he reminds us that flowers and gold may be acceptable to those we love, but "the only gift is a portion of thyself." "Spiritual Laws" points out that because a higher law than our own rules the world, there is no need for struggle. Other essays include "Character," "Prudence," "Intellect," "Love," "Beauty,""The American Scholar" addressand others.Readers of all ages will want to keep this volume on hand to inspire and refresh the spirit"
