„For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.“

— Ralph Waldo Emerson
No known source in Emerson's works; first found as a piece of anonymous folk-wisdom in a 1936 newspaper column:

„What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.“

— Ralph Waldo Emerson
As [http://quoteinvestigator.com/2011/01/11/what-lies-within/ reported by Quoteinvestigator on January 11, 2011] the quote appeared in “Meditations in Wall Street” (1940) by Wall Street trader Henry Stanley Haskins, "a Wall Street trader with a checkered background. The phrase was misattributed because the true author's name was initially withheld. In addition, the assignment of the maxim to a more prestigious individual, e.g., Emerson or Thoreau, made it more attractive and more believable as a nugget of wisdom." Emerson made a number of similar statements — in "The American Scholar," for example, he says "Give me insight into to-day, and you may have the antique and future worlds" — which probably increased the likelihood of misattribution.
