Self-reliance and the over-soul essays by ralph waldo emerson

For non-conformity the world whips you with its displeasure. And therefore a man must know how to estimate a sour face. The bystanders look askance on him in the public street or in the friend's parlor. If this aversion had its origin in the contempt and resistance like his own he might well go home with a sad countenance; but the sour face of the multitude, like their sweet faces, have no deep cause — disguise no god, but are put on and off as the wind blows and a newspaper directs. Yet is the discontent of the multitude more formidable than that of the senate and the college. It is easy enough for a firm man who knows the world to brook the rage of the cultivated classes. Their rage is decorous and prudent, for they are timid, as being very vulnerable themselves. But when to their feminine rage the indignation of the people is added, when the ignorant and the poor are aroused, when the unintelligent brute force that lies at the bottom of society is made to growl and mow, it needs the habit of magnanimity and religion to treat it godlike as a trifle of no concernment.

Q. What is ADASHN (Alcohol and Drug Abuse Self-Help Network), and what is its relationship SMART Recovery?

A. In August, 1994, when the Board of Directors decided to end its affiliation with Rational Recovery Systems (RR), it was necessary to change our name, which had been Rational Recovery Self-Help Network. Because there had been insufficient time to identify a suitable name, Joe Gerstein, ., President at that time, suggested ADASHN as a name that would not bring us into conflict with the name of any other organization. It was understood by all that in time a better name would be established. Rob Sarmiento, ., a Board Member, suggested SMART Recovery several weeks later, and this name was adopted in October, 1996. However, because a number of documents and accounts had already been established under the name ADASHN, we became ADASHN dba (doing business as) SMART Recovery. In time changing all of our documents and accounts over to SMART Recovery® may become a priority, but for now all of our efforts have been directed toward building our network.
