Henry David Thoreau

Be true to your work, your word, and your friend.

Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it.

Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something.

Every man is the builder of a temple called his body.

How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.

It is never too late to give up your prejudices.

Men are born to succeed, not fail.

Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.


  1. I love Thoreau. In Fact, I try to read Walden at least every year or so.

  2. Reading Thoreau is on my LLL (life-long list), along with riding in a helicopter.

    Thanks for the nudge.
