Thoreau for your Saturday…

The very simplicity and nakedness of man’s life in the primitive ages imply this advantage at least, that they left him still but a sojourner in nature.When he was refreshed with food and sleep he contemplated his journey again.He dwelt,as it were, in a tent in this world,and  was either threading the valleys, or crossing plains,or climbing the mountain tops….We now no longer camp as for the night,but have settled down on earth and forgotten heaven.We have adopted Christianity merely as an improved methos of agriculture.Walden-Economy 1854.
