The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau

http://www.library.ucsb.edu/thoreau/


“But men labor under a mistake.
The better part of the man is soon ploughed into the soil for compost.
By a seeming fate, commonly called necessity, they are employed,
as it says in the old book, laying up treasures
which moth and rust will corrupt and thieves break through and steal.
It is a fool’s life, as they will find when they get to the end of it,
if not before.”
–Henry David Thoreau, Walden, 1854

One navigates life's journey with the compass given. With blessings our instrument is true. Never Forget Remember the One The Way of Love Our Life, Our All This I believe is the journey we share so let us gladly walk together.
