Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862)
I am convinced that to maintain one’s self care on this earth is not a hardship but a pass time, if we will live simply and wisely.
In most books, the I, or first person, is omitted; in this it will be retained;... We commonly do not remember that it is, after all, always the first person that is speaking. I should not talk so much about myself if there were anybody else whom I knew as well. Unfortunately, I am confined to this theme by the narrowness of my experience. — Henry David Thoreau

To finish the moment, to find the journey's end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
