In the final chapter Thoreau's remarks appear on page
45 of "The Heart of Thoreau's Journals", edited by Odell
Shepard (Houghton Mifflin) . Whenever possible I have
referred to "The Heart of Emerson's Journals," as this
book is accessible to more readers.

The complete text of the creed quoted on page 7 may
be found in the biography of Emerson by Oliver Wendell
Holmes (pp. 370-371) . Two authorities incline to the
view that Emerson did not write this creed, that Dr. Holmes used these words, to quote one authority, "as an effective figurative means of summarizing what he thought Emerson's basic convictions were by about 1832."

On the other hand, Dr. Samuel Crothers quotes this
creed on the final page of his work on Emerson, and comments on it as follows: "While a young man, he (Emerson) had written down certain resolutions by which he wished to guide his life."
