Zitate Margaret Fuller

„All around us lies what we neither understand nor use. Our capacities, our instincts for this our present sphere are but half developed.“

—  Margaret Fuller

"Good Sense" in a dialogue between Free Hope, Old Church, Good Sense, and Self -Poise. p. 127.
Summer on the Lakes, in 1843 (1844)
Kontext: All around us lies what we neither understand nor use. Our capacities, our instincts for this our present sphere are but half developed. Let us confine ourselves to that till the lesson be learned; let us be completely natural; before we trouble ourselves with the supernatural. I never see any of these things but I long to get away and lie under a green tree and let the wind blow on me. There is marvel and charm enough in that for me.

„Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.“

—  Margaret Fuller

Variante: Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.”
― Margaret Fuller

„Existence is as deep a verity:
Without the dual, where is unity?“

—  Margaret Fuller

Life Without and Life Within (1859), The One In All
Kontext: Existence is as deep a verity:
Without the dual, where is unity?
And the "I am"" cannot forbear to be;But from its primal nature forced to frame
Mysteries, destinies of various name,
Is forced to give that it has taught to claim.

„Let every woman, who has once begun to think, examine herself“

—  Margaret Fuller, buch Woman in the Nineteenth Century

Quelle: Woman in the Nineteenth Century

„There are noble books but one wants the breath of life sometimes.“

—  Margaret Fuller

Letter to Ralph Waldo Emerson (1 March 1838); published in The Letters of Margaret Fuller vol. I, p. 327, , edited by Robert N. Hudspeth (1983).
Kontext: There are noble books but one wants the breath of life sometimes. And I see no divine person. I myself am more divine than any I see — I think that is enough to say about them...

„The especial genius of Woman I believe to be electrical in movement, intuitive in function, spiritual in tendency.“

—  Margaret Fuller, buch Woman in the Nineteenth Century

Woman in the Nineteenth Century (1845)

„Nature provides exceptions to every rule.“

—  Margaret Fuller, buch Woman in the Nineteenth Century

Woman in the Nineteenth Century (1845)
Kontext: Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism. But, in fact, they are perpetually passing into one another. Fluid hardens to solid, solid rushes to fluid. There is no wholly masculine man, no purely feminine woman.
History jeers at the attempts of physiologists to bind great original laws by the forms which flow from them. They make a rule; they say from observation what can and cannot be. In vain! Nature provides exceptions to every rule. She sends women to battle, and sets Hercules spinning; she enables women to bear immense burdens, cold, and frost; she enables the man, who feels maternal love, to nourish his infant like a mother.

„Very early, I knew that the only object in life was to grow.“

—  Margaret Fuller

Memoirs of Margaret Fuller Ossoli (1852), Vol. I, p. 132.

„The pass-word now is lost
To that initiation full and free;
Daily we pay the cost
Of our slow schooling for divine degree.“

—  Margaret Fuller

Life Without and Life Within (1859), Sub Rosa, Crux
Kontext: The pass-word now is lost
To that initiation full and free;
Daily we pay the cost
Of our slow schooling for divine degree.
We know no means to feed an undying lamp;
Our lights go out in every wind or damp.

„What I mean by the Muse is that unimpeded clearness of the intuitive powers, which a perfectly truthful adherence to every admonition of the higher instincts would bring to a finely organized human being.“

—  Margaret Fuller, buch Woman in the Nineteenth Century

Woman in the Nineteenth Century (1845)
Kontext: What I mean by the Muse is that unimpeded clearness of the intuitive powers, which a perfectly truthful adherence to every admonition of the higher instincts would bring to a finely organized human being. It may appear as prophecy or as poesy. … and should these faculties have free play, I believe they will open new, deeper and purer sources of joyous inspiration than have as yet refreshed the earth.
Let us be wise, and not impede the soul. Let her work as she will. Let us have one creative energy, one incessant revelation. Let it take what form it will, and let us not bind it by the past to man or woman, black or white.

„God will transplant the root, if he wills to rear it into fruit-bearing.“

—  Margaret Fuller

Letter (Spring 1850).
Memoirs of Margaret Fuller Ossoli (1852)
Kontext: I feel perfectly willing to stay my threescore years and ten, if it be thought I need so much tuition from this planet; but it seems to me that my future upon earth will soon close. It may be terribly trying, but it will not be so very long, now. God will transplant the root, if he wills to rear it into fruit-bearing.

„See the wild herd nobly ranging,
Nature varying, not changing,
Lawful in their lawless ranging.“

—  Margaret Fuller

Life Without and Life Within (1859), The Captured Wild Horse
Kontext: p>On the boundless plain careering
By an unseen compass steering, Wildly flying, reappearing, —
With untamed fire their broad eyes glowing
In every step a grand pride showing,
Of no servile moment knowing, —Happy as the trees and flowers, In their instinct cradled hours,
Happier in fuller powers, —See the wild herd nobly ranging,
Nature varying, not changing,
Lawful in their lawless ranging.</p

„With equal sweetness the commissioned hours
Shed light and dew upon both weeds and flowers.“

—  Margaret Fuller

Life Without and Life Within (1859), The Thankful and the Thankless
Kontext: With equal sweetness the commissioned hours
Shed light and dew upon both weeds and flowers.
The weeds unthankful raise their vile heads high,
Flaunting back insult to the gracious sky;
While the dear flowers, wht fond humility,
Uplift the eyelids of a starry eye
In speechless homage, and, from grateful hearts,
Perfume that homage all around imparts.
