how to be a man

"Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist. He who would gather immortal palms must not be hindered by the name of goodness, but must explore if it be goodness. Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson [1803-1882]; recited at the funeral of Frank Lloyd Wright [1867-1959].

An earlier reference to Emerson on this blog here.
