On Kate's presentation, 5th March

A good attendance of ten (including Kate).

Kate began her presentation of Emerson's "Self-Reliance" with some pertinent quotes

Familiar as the voice of the mind is to each, the highest merit we ascribe to Moses, Plato, and Milton is, that they set at naught books and traditions, and spoke not what men but what they thought.  A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which ashes across his mind from within, more than the lustre of the firmament of bards and sages.
