Emerson, Ralph Waldo - All history is subjective



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Ralph Waldo Emerson

All history becomes subjective; in other words, there is properly no history; only biography.  Every soul must know the whole lesson for itself – must go over the whole ground.  What it does not see, what it does not live, it will not know

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
