We owe this proverb to Ralph Waldo Emerson, the American philosopher. Here is a condensed version of what he wrote:
Everything good in man leans on is higher. All our strength and success in the work of our hands depend on our borrowing the aid of the elements … I admire the skill which, on the sea-shore, makes the tides drive wheels and grind corn, and which thus engages the assistance of the moon, like a hired hand. Now that is the wisdom of a man, in every instance of his labor, to hitch his wagon to a star, and his chore done by the gods themselves … Hitch your wagon to a star. Let us not flag in paltry works which serve our pot and bag alone … Work rather for those interests which the divinities honor and promote –justice, love, freedom, knowledge, utility.
