El hombre debe ser libre, libre y valiente. Debe hacerle frente varonilmente. No quiere realidades ni creadores, sino nombres y usos. Quien aspire a ser hombre tiene que ser no conformista. Nada es sagrado, excepto la integridad de nuestra alma.

This book seriously affected me in a very postive way. Essay or book, it had a profound impact on me. In fact, I was utterly floored while reading this and it has become one of my "All Time Favorites.
Related to this first point, Emerson holds that you must never give in to the easy momentum of the status quo just because it is pulling you along. Rather you must investigate the world around you, take in the evidence of your senses and experience and use your own powers of reason to determine the correct path your life should follow.
In short, it is an anthem to the individual and a battle cry to everyone to think for themselves. At first blush, this may sound a little like an appeal for anarchy, but that is certainly not the case. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. These quotes may have had the most powerful impact on me. It is the twin goals or both being forceful with your beliefs and opinions while at the same time always being willing to question them and listen not just hear to contrary opinions and never be afraid to change your mind if you find an error in your thinking.
Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. I think it is important to note here that Emerson was not an anarchist or a hater of society and did not believe in an individualism of selfishness. This work was brilliant, insightful and very, very powerful and one that will be given a permanent list on the most important works I have read.
