“In different hours, a man represents each of several of his ancestors…” — Emerson

“In different hours,
a man represents
each of several of his ancestors,
as if there were seven or eight of us
rolled up in each man’s skin,
seven or eight ancestors at least,
and they constitute
the variety of notes
for that new piece of music
which his life is.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
