In different hours…

“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
