Look sharply after your thoughts. They come unlooked for, like a new bird seen on your trees and, if you turn to your usual task, disappear; and you shall never find that perception again; Never, I say— and perhaps years, ages, and I know not what events and worlds may lie between you and its return.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson
  American writer and philosopher (1803-1882)
