"If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years, how man would marvel and stare." - Ralph Waldo Emerson---- but we absolutely take it for granted every single day. We are sometimes a most thankless group of people.
This Ralph Waldo Emerson quote reflects the importance of nonconformity to the transcendentalists. Nonconformity results in individualism and creativity which are some main ideas of most transcendentalists.
