Explain "Not for nothing on face, on character, on fact makes much impression on him, and another none."


The correct quote is

Not for nothing one face, one character, one fact, makes much impression on him, and another none.

The meaning of this quote is very much in line with the point of the whole essay.  In this essay, Emerson is saying that people should do what their own conscience tells them, not what society says to do.  Just before the quote you mention, Emerson says that people need to understand that "imitation is suicide."  This means that people must do their "own thing" if they really want to be people.

Your quote means the same thing.  It says that there is a reason that some things (some faces, characters or facts) make an impression on us and other things don't.  The reason is that we are all different.  Because we are all different, we must do what our own minds tell us.
