Emerson talks allot about the fluctuating moods of the human being, Emerson writes that life is “a train of moods like a string of beads,” through which we see only what lies in each bead's focus (CW3: 30). The beads include our temperaments, our changing moods, and the “Lords of Life” which govern all human experience. Emerson believed that people are so temperamental because they have lost nature's rhythms. Living in nature, Emerson argues, clears the mind of everything inconsequential and links the individual with his or her god given rhythms in sync with the natural elements.
