Definitely words to live by! The first page of the journal has a sepia photo of Ralph Waldo Emerson, captioned with the above inspirational of my favorites of his. It would make a wonderful gift that any bookworm, or aspiring writer would cherish. (This journal can also come without the quote page. Please let me know in 'Notes to Seller' at check-out if you would prefer this.) The gorgeous distressed dark brown leather lends the journal an antique quality, and looks like something Emerson would have written in himself! The tab in front keeps the journal closed with an antiqued metal stud. NOTE: The leather may or may not stain the first and last pages giving it an age-worn antique look.
