Asian Geographic - - CONTENTS - By Ralph-Waldo Emer­son (1803 1882)

Well for those who have no fear, Look­ing sea­ward well as­sured That the word the ves­sel brings Is the word they wish to hear.

Ralph Waldo Emer­son was an Amer­i­can es­say­ist, poet, philoso­pher and lec­turer who led the tran­scen­den­tal­ist move­ment of the mid-19th cen­tury. He was seen as a cham­pion of in­di­vid­u­al­ism and a pre­scient critic of the coun­ter­vail­ing pres­sures of so­ci­ety, and he dis­sem­i­nated his thoughts through dozens of pub­lished es­says and more than 1,500 pub­lic lec­tures across the United States.
