Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes On Self Reliance

356 Words2 Pages
The quote I chose was from the essay Self-Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson. The quote states, “Accept the place the divine provi­dence has found for you; the society of your contemporaries, the connection of events.” The paragraph continues on and explains how men in the past have trusted and accepted God’s will and have been accepted into the highest mind, heaven. Emerson is trying to convey to us that God has a plan in each of our lives. As Catholics we need to understand that God is the one who created a plan for us. We should understand and accept that what happens in our lives is meant to happen for a reason because God intended it to happen.
God has known each and everyone one of us personally, even before the moment we were conceived.
