But don't try it at work.

Sometimes it’s better to blame what we’ve learnt and our memories.

Scream - I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore. Well it might make a great movie.

I recently read in a health magazine that screaming is a good way to avoid heart attacks for people under stress. The article says that when a person feels angry or frustrated, it is best that he goes inside a closed sound-proof room or to a remote location and screams for ten minutes. This would help remove his stress.

Thommy, if you're allowed to scream at coworkers (and bosses?), I want to get a job in Germany! Dancing

Emerson was apparently not speaking of a literal scream. He was, rather, using it to mean a short protest as opposed to an in-depth work. This is from his journal, and the reference is to the Trail of Tears:
Quote:
This disaster of the Cherokees, brought to me by a sad friend to blacken my days and nights! I can do nothing; why shriek? Why strike ineffectual blows? I stir in it for the sad reason that no other mortal will move, and if I do not, why, it is left undone. The amount of it, to be sure, is merely a scream; but sometimes a scream is better than a thesis.


Emerson wrote to President Van Buren protesting the forced removals:
