~Read More By Ralph Waldo Emerson~

Misunderstood?

Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.

Am I Wiser At 51 Than I Was At 18 Or Am I More Naive?


When I was 18, I married a stranger and suffered through 9 years of being married to the wrong guy. Now I've been divorced for 23 years. I've dated, been engaged a few times, but I just don't trust a man to be true to not only me but to himself. How could I ever remarry, if the man who asks basis who he represents himself to be on a lie again? I guess I've allowed the scar of my first marriage keep me from easily trusting another man. When I do trust a man, it isn't only extremely difficult. It's also usually wrong. I trust so seldom, why can't I just trust the right guy for a change?
