Thoreau for your Saturday…

Still we live meanly,like ants;though the fable tells us that we were long ago change into men; like pygmies we fight with cranes; it is error upon error,and clout upon clout and best virtue has for its occasion a superfluous and evitable wretchedness.Our life is frittered away by detail…Simplicity,simplicity,simplicity!…Walden-“Where I Lived, And What I Lived For”-1854.
