Even when Emerson says something I disagree with–which is often–I still like the way he says it. Here, I like both what he says and the way he says it.
[The poet] pursues a beauty, half seen, which flies before him. The poet pours out verses in every solitude. Most of the things he says are conventional, no doubt; but by and by he says something which is original and beautiful. That charms him. He would say nothing else but such things.
–R. W. Emerson, from the essay “The Poet”
