Excerpt from Emerson's Essay on Compensation These thoughts on government, religion, and art alike, are colored by democracy. The exclusive in fashionable life does not see that he excludes himself from enjoyment, in the attempt to appropriate it. The exclusionist in religion does not see that he shuts the door of heaven on himself in striving to shut out others. The best part of a writer has nothing pri vate in it.
