Self-Reliance and Un-Self-Reliance

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Journals (September 30, 1838):
It seems as if a man should learn to fish, to plant or to hunt that he might be secure if he were cast out from society and not be painful to his friends and fellow men.
Id. (July 6, 1840):
Society is full of infirm, lazy people who are incessantly calling on others to serve them.
Id. (July 6, 1840):
Let every man shovel out his own snow, and the whole city will be passable.
