Thought for This Moment

By Ralph Waldo Emerson

No man can learn what he has not preparation for learning, however near to his eyes is the object. … God screens us evermore from premature ideas. Our eyes are holden that we cannot see things that stare us in the face, until the hour arrives when the mind is ripened — then we behold them, and the time when we saw them not is like a dream.
