Character is higher than intellect

"A man of genius is privileged as far as he is genius. His dullness is as insupportable as any other dullness. Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live, as well as to think. Sacred are those of truth."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I received this from someone trying to help me understand.

"I read that the other day and found it interesting. among one of many interprutations is the concept: to be true to others you must first be true to yourself. If you live a lie then you will only speak lies. Truth is far more profound than it is given credit for.

Anyway, it was just an interesting quote and I thought you might like it."

Sharing light with Kimmy. Striving to create a path between the present course of events and a new course; leading to new outcomes.
