Ralph Waldo Emerson T-Shirt: Emerson on Giving Thanks, a Thanksgiving Post

author t-shirts book gift book gifts book shirts book t-shirt book-lovers t-shirt emerson jersey emerson t-shirt emerson thanks emerson thanksgiving ralph waldo emerson thanksgiving thanksgiving quote the writers almanac transcendentalism quote

Our Ralph Waldo Emerson t-shirt celebrates a man who, if he said something on a topic, probably said it better than anyone else. Here's a quote of Emerson's about being thankful that we wanted to share. We first heard on one of our favorite radio programs, The Writers' Almanac: “Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” What we could possibly add to that sentiment we don't know, except to wish you...

Whitman is taught less and less in high schools, so fewer readers are encountering him these days. If you don't know where to start, consider "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" and "Song of Myself." No matter how many times we've done it, reading those poems always puts us in a good mood. We're also put in a good mood when we discover other folks that are ecstatic about...
