A little Thoreau for your Wednesday…



 

•We have lived not in proportion to the number of years we have spent on earth, but in proportion as we have enjoyed.

•I went to the woods because i wished to see if I could not learn what life had to teach-and not,when I came to die,discover that I had not lived.

•That man is the richest whose pleasures are the cheapest.•

•The finest qualities in our nature,like the bloom on fruits, can be preserved only by the most delicate handling.

•We need the tonic of wildness.

•Most of the luxuries of life are positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.

•I have always regretted i am not as wise as the day I was born.

•Our life is frittered away by detail.

•A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to leave alone.

•We can never have enough of Nature.
