Emerson
Transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882).

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.  With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do.  He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall.

"Self Reliance" (1841).
