Homework Help: English-Quote

Posted by hue on Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 4:04pm.

We come to them who weep foolishly, and sit down and cry for company, instead of imparting to them truth and health in rough electric shocks, putting them once more in communication with the soul.”

Based on this quote, what can you ascertain about Emerson’s beliefs?

A.Emerson had no use for friendship.

B.Emerson believed that public display of emotion was an unnecessary sign of weakness.

C.Emerson argued for tough love.

D.Emerson believed that man’s direct connection with the divine was inconsistent and often interrupted.

I believe the answer is C but would like some reassurance. Try going on just the quote and not the general theme, if you have read this essay of Emerson's before since the question says "Based on this quote.."

Thank you
