In Reply to: PHRASE-I never met a man who was not in some way my superior posted by Bob on June 23, 2003
: : : Does anyone know where the phrase "I never met a man who was not in some way my superior". I think it may be Lincoln.
: Quote: Ralph Waldo Emerson
: "Every man I meet is in some way my superior. "
: I will once again recommend to everyone Emerson's Journals. Good reading.
There is an episode of All in the Family which contains the quote:
"Every man is my superior in that I may learn from him".
Is this a real quote? Who said it?
