|Henry David Thoreau 1817 - 1862|
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
