For Self-Reliance and Other Essays, Emerson drew from his own lectures and journal entries, processing his thoughts on self-reliance as a virtue. To be fulfilled, Emerson believed that one must follow his own dreams and desires, avoiding conformity to society. For Emerson, freedom lay within grasp if one relied on oneself for purpose and growth. Students will have to decide for themselves if and where Emerson’s ideas appeal to truth.

How to Coax Your New Book to Lay Flat

 Place the book with its back on a table.

Open the front cover.

Then open the back cover.

Open a few pages in the front, gently pressing along the spine.

Then open a few pages at the back of the book in the same way.

Continue opening pages, alternating between the front and back, until the book is fully open. Gently press along the center spine.

 

You may need to repeat this process two or three times to limber up the binding. Never force the spine or handle your book roughly as that may break the back and cause pages to (eventually) come loose.
