The great American writer and thinker Ralph Waldo Emerson once said:
“Make your own Bible. Select and collect all the words and sentences that in all your readings have been to you like the blast of a trumpet.”
Think of some words you’ve read recently that made an impression on you and made you pause and think. These are the beginning words that you could jot down in a notebook, whether you call it ”bible” or ”journal” or ”book of thoughts.”
Begin today to put together your own Bible of good words. It’ll do you good and provide you with comfort over the long run and these ideas can be used in your own writings for school. These words will also provide great comfort to you when you refer to them in the future.
