Thoreau for your Monday…

MY FRIENDS, WHY SHOULD WE LIVE

My friends,why should we live?

Life is an idle war, a toilsome peace;

Today I would not give

One small consent for its securest ease.

Shall we out-wear the year

In our pavilions  on its dusty plain

And yet no signal heat

To strike out tents and take the road again?

 

Useless but in the hope,

Some far remote and heavenward hill to gain.
