I have been an RWE fan for a couple years now. I find and use his quotes frequently. They inspire me to step up and meet the challenges to a good life. I have a number of websites to source his quotes, which you too might have. I wasn't sure if this is the place to list them though.
Recently, I discovered this quote which has made me pause, and which I think would make Emerson feel he has successfully made his point (at least to me)about self reliance:
"I hate quotations. Tell me what you know." --Ralph Waldo Emerson
