Henry David Thoreau 1817 - 1862
Thoreau, a renown philosopher of the 1800's, offered society a message that was relevant in his time and even more so today: iving essentially, at the most simple level, communing with and respecting nature and finding truths through observation, experience and reflection.


I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. ~ Henry David Thoreau





Walden Pond ~ Thoreau's Cove


Slow down, look around, and pull back the curtain of your hurried life to be...simply.



Artist Jay Luke














As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness. ~ Henry David Thoreau

I learned that Thoreau "urged that men and women ought to live more simply, and more deliberately." I didn't really know what his work was about before now. I had heard some of his quotes but that's it.
