HYMN. SUNG AT THE COMPLETION OF CONCORD MONUMENT, APRIL 19, 1836.
By the rude bridge that arched the flood, Their flag to April's breeze unfurled, Here once the embattled farmers stood, And fired the shot heard round the world, The foe long since in silence slept, Alike the Conqueror silent sleeps, And Time the ruined bridge has swept Down the dark stream which seaward creeps. On this green bank, by this soft stream, We set to-day a votive stone, That memory may their deed redeem, When like our sires our sons are gone. Spirit! who made those freemen dare To die, or leave their children free, Bid time and nature gently spare The shaft we raise to them and Thee. from: Emerson, Ralph Waldo.

Henry David Thoreau: Appreciation
An Essay
by
Ralph Waldo Emerson
He was a born protestant. He declined to give up his large ambition of knowledge and action for any narrow craft or profession, aiming at a much more comprehensive calling, the art of living well. He chose to be rich by making his wants few, and supplying them himself. There was somewhat military in his nature, not to be subdued, always manly and able, but rarely tender, as if he did not feel himself except in opposition. He wanted a fallacy to expose, a blunder to pillory, I may say required a little sense of victory, a roll of the drum, to call his powers into full exercise. In 1847, not approving some uses to which the public expenditure was applied, he refused to pay his town tax, and was put in jail. A friend paid the tax for him, and he was released. The like annoyance was threatened the next year. But as his friends paid the tax, notwithstanding his protest, I believe he ceased to resist. No truer American existed than Thoreau. His preference of his country and condition was genuine, and his aversion from English and European manners and tastes almost reached contempt. He listened impatiently to news or

Biography
Waldo Emerson is truly the center of the American transcendental movement, setting out most of its ideas and values in a little book, Nature , published in 1836, that represented at least ten years of intense study in philosophy, religion, and literature, and in his First Series of essays. Born in 1803 to a conservative Unitarian minister, from a long line of ministers, and a quietly devout mother, Waldowho dropped the "Ralph" in collegewas a middle son of whom relatively little was expected. His father died when he was eight, the first of many premature deaths which would shape his lifeall three brothers, his first wife at 20, and his older son at 5. Perhaps the most powerful personal influence on him for years was his intellectual, eccentric, and death-obsessed Puritanical aunt, Mary Moody Emerson. Yet Emerson often confessed to an innate optimism, even occasional "silliness." His undergraduate career at Harvard was not illustrious, and his studies at the Harvard Divinity School were truncated by vision problems, but he was ordained a minister of the Second Church in Boston, shortly before marrying Ellen Tucker in 1829. He resigned in 1832 after her death from tuberculosis, troubled by theological doctrines such as the Lord's Supper, and traveled extensively in Europe, returning to begin a career of lecturing. In 1835 he married

The Poet
from Essays: Second Series A moody child and wildly wise Pursued the game with joyful eyes, Which chose, like meteors, their way, And rived the dark with private ray: They overleapt the horizon's edge, Searched with Apollo's privilege; Through man, and woman, and sea, and star, Saw the dance of nature forward far; Through worlds, and races, and terms, and times, Saw musical order, and pairing rhymes. Olympian bards who sung Divine ideas below, Which always find us young, And always keep us so.
ESSAY I The Poet
The breadth of the problem is great, for the poet is representative. He stands among partial men for the complete man, and apprises us not of his wealth, but of the common-wealth. The young man reveres men of genius, because, to speak truly, they are more himself than he is. They receive of the soul as he also receives, but they more. Nature enhances her beauty, to the eye of loving men, from their belief that the poet is beholding her shows at the same time. He is isolated among his contemporaries, by truth and by his art, but with this consolation in his pursuits, that they will draw all men sooner or later. For all men live by truth, and stand in need of expression. In love, in art, in avarice, in politics, in labor, in games, we study to utter our painful secret. The man is only half himself, the other half is his expression.

Biography
American writer, essayist, poet and leading figure in American literature during the mid-19th century, whose first work "Nature" was published in Boston in 1836. He left hundreds of private journals, raw material of his lectures, essays, poems, six volumes of letters and "The Works of Emerson," a compendium of essays and speeches which was published in 1903. He was a Unitarian minister from 1826-1832, deeply spiritual yet independent . Emerson had a difficult early life. His father died when he was eight years old, leaving young Waldo with his mother and siblings to the generosity of their church and a boardinghouse income. His sister, Mary Caroline, died in 1814, and one of his brothers, Robert, was mentally incompetent, requiring institutional care. The family lived in a poor section of Boston, where Emerson went to school often without a coat in winter. But nonetheless he received a solid classical education and entered Harvard in 1817 on scholarship at the age of 14. He received his degree in 1821. He followed his father's example and prepared for the ministry, being ordained in 1826. After the death of his first wife in 1831, Emerson resigned his ministry post, and sailed for Europe on 12/25/1832.

Sovereignty of Ethics
"The Sovereignty of Ethics" by Ralph Waldo Emerson Reprinted from the North American Review , of May, 1878. Vol. X. 12. Emerson, Ralph Waldo Lectures and Biographical Sketches pp. 175-206. THESE rules were writ in human heart By Him who built the day; The columns of the universe Not firmer based than they. Thou shalt not try To plant thy shrivelled pedantry On the shoulders of the sky. THE SOVEREIGNTY OF ETHICS. As this unity exists in the organization of insect, beast and bird, still ascending to man, and from lower type of man to the highest yet attained, so it does not less declare itself in the spirit or intelligence of the brute. In ignorant ages it was common to vaunt the human superiority by underrating the instinct of other animals; but a better discernment finds that the difference is only of less and more. Experiment shows that the bird and the dog reason as the hunter does, that all the animals show the same good sense in their humble walk that the man who is their enemy or friend does; and, if it be in smaller measure, yet it is not diminished, as his often is, by freak and folly. St. Pierre says of the animals that a moral sentiment seems to have determined their physical organization. "One avenue was shaded from thine eyes

The Lord's Supper
from Uncollected Prose
The Lord's Supper
The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. ROMANS XIV. 17. I allude to these facts only to show that, so far from the supper being a tradition in which men are fully agreed, there always been the widest room for difference of opinion upon this particular. Having recently given particular attention to this subject, I was led to the conclusion that Jesus did not intend to establish an institution for perpetual observance when he ate the Passover with his disciples; and, further, to the opinion, that it is not expedient to celebrate it as we do. I shall now endeavor to state distinctly my reasons for these two opinions. I. The authority of the rite. An account of the last supper of Christ with his disciples is given by the four Evangelists, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. In St. Matthew's Gospel (Matt. XXVI. 26-30) are recorded the words of Jesus in giving bread and wine on that occasion to his disciples, but no expression occurs intimating that this feast was hereafter to be commemorated.
