Literary Birthday - 12 July
Happy Birthday, Henry David Thoreau, born 12 July 1817, died 6 May 1862
12 Quotes
The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.
Every poet has trembled on the verge of science.
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
There is no remedy for love, but to love more.
A bore is someone who takes away my solitude and doesn’t give me companionship in return.
How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.
The youth gets together his materials to build a bridge to the moon, or, perchance, a palace or temple on the earth, and, at length, the middle-aged man concludes to build a woodshed with them.
Never look back unless you are planning to go that way.
What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.
Nothing is so much to be feared as fear.
It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.
Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all.
Thoreau was an American author, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, and historian. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings.
