Circles by Ralph Waldo EmersonApplewood Books
Transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson's 1841 essay "Circles" reflects on the endless circles found in nature, and the fluidity of the universe. He encourages the embracing of new thoughts and ideas: "No truth so sublime but it may be trivial to-morrow in the light of new thoughts. People wish to be settled; only as far as they are unsettled is there any hope for them."
