Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
The True Artist has the planet for his pedestal; the adventurer, after years of strife, has nothing broader than his shoes.
This quote highlights the contrast between the true artist and the adventurous individual. It suggests that while the artist elevates their work to a higher level, encompassing the entire world, the adventurer's experiences and achievements are limited to the physical realm and their personal struggles. The artist's creative expression knows no bounds and extends to a universal scale, while the adventurous individual's accomplishments are more fleeting and confined to their immediate surroundings.
God moves in extremely mysterious, not to say, circuitous ways. God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, ie., everybody, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.
