"God [is] the native of these bleak rocks.  That need makes in morals the capital virtue of self-trust. We must hold hard to this poverty, however scandalous, and by more vigorous self-recovereis, after the sallies of action, possess our axis more firmly."

Emerson, "Experience," qtd in Poirier 12.
