Found Words – Emerson

More complete quote:

“There are men, who, by their sympathetic attractions, carry nations with them, and lead the activity of the human race. And if there be such a tie, that, wherever the mind of man goes, nature will accompany him, perhaps there are men whose magnetisms are of that force to draw material and elemental powers, and where they appear, immense instrumentalities organize around them. Life is a search after power; and this is an element with which the world is so satureated,–there is no chink or crevice in which it is not lodged,–that no honest seeking goes unrewarded.”
