Thoreau’s birthday

In honor of Thoreau’s birthday, 198 years ago, I’ve included some of my favorite quotations from Walden.

The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.

If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life.

Simplify. Simplify.
