Transcedentalist Quotes

Quote 3: Dreams are the touchstones of our character.A touchstone is used to test alloys of gold, to see if they are real. It did this by seeing what it was made up of. In the same way dreams are what make up people. If you dream big you will accomplish a lot and do what you put your mind to. While if you dream small you will achieve little in life. In this way dreams make up the type of person you are, just like the touchstone determined the type of alloy they had.

Quote 1: The ancestor of every action is a thought.This is saying that everyone thinks. When you get up in the morning you think about what to have for breakfast, or what you're doing after school. Whenever you do something you think about it first. An ancestor is a descendant of something. In this case the thought. So before an action happens, there is somewhat of a thought process that goes on. Which means we all think before we do.
