I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life. To put to rout all that was not life. And not, when I come to die, discover that I had not lived.

All that man can say or do that can possibly concern mankind is, in some shape or other, to tell the story of his love - to sing, and if he is fortunate and keeps alive he will be forever in love. This alone is to be alive to the extremities. It is such a pity that this divine creature should ever suffer from cold feet. A still greater pity that the coldness so often reaches to his heart.
Henry David Thoreau

Nota: Walden(1854),I,Economy

Henry David Thoreau
We are sometimes made aware of a kindness long passed, and realize that there have been times when our friends' thoughts of us were of so pure and lofty a character that they passed over us like the winds of heaven unnoticed; when they treated us not as what we were, but as what we aspired to be. -- from A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers 56.One may discover a new side to his most intimate friend when for the first time he hears him speak in public. He will be stranger to him as he is more familiar to the audience. The longest intimacy could not foretell how he would behave then.

It is never too late to give up our prejudices. No way of thinking or doing, however ancient can be trusted without proof. What every body echos or in silence passes by as true today may turn out to be falsehood tomorrow, mere smoke of opinion, which some had trusted for a cloud that would sprinkle fertilizing rain on their fields. What old people say you cannot do you try and find out you can. Old deeds for old people, and new deeds for new.
Henry David Thoreau
Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.
Henry David Thoreau

Okoliczności: Walden

The millions are awake enough for physical labor; but only one in a million is awake enough for effective intellectual exertion, only one in a hundred million to a poetic or divine life. To be awake is to be alive ... We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.
Henry David Thoreau
Problem solving and creativity Our life is frittered away by detail. An honest man has hardly need to count more than his ten fingers, or in extreme cases he may add his ten toes, and lump the rest. Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity. I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb nail.
Henry David Thoreau

Okoliczności: Walden

In the midst of this chopping sea of civilized life, such are the clouds and storms and quicksands and thousand-and-one items to be allowed for, that a man has to live, if he would not founder and go to the bottom and not make his port at all, by dead reckoning, and he must be a great calculator indeed who succeeds. Simplify, simplify.
Henry David Thoreau

There is an incessant influx of novelty into the world, and yet we tolerate incredible dullness.
Henry David Thoreau

Okoliczności: Walden

In wildness is the preservation of the World.

The works of the great poets have never yet been read by mankind, for only great poets can read them.
Henry David Thoreau

Okoliczności: Walden(1854), III, Reading

I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will.
Henry David Thoreau

Okoliczności: Walden(1854),V, Solitude

Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it.
Henry David Thoreau
Chcę żyć pełnią życia, chcę wyssać wszystkie soki życia. (...) By nie odkryć tuż przed śmiercią, że nie umiałem żyć.
Henry David Thoreau
Życie miejskie: miliony ludzi, których dzieli wspólna samotność.
Henry David Thoreau
The question is not what you look at, but what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
I begin to see an object when I cease to understand it.

It is only necessary to behold the least fact or phenomenon, however familiar, from a point a hair's breadth aside from our habitual path or routine, to be overcome, enchanted by its beauty and significance ... To perceive freshly, with fresh senses is to be inspired.
Henry David Thoreau

Okoliczności: Walden

Direct your eye right inward, and you'll find a thousand regions in your mind yet undiscovered. Travel them and be expert in home-cosmography.

Okoliczności: Walden

Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.
Henry David Thoreau
Consider what is truly respectable, not what is respected.
Henry David Thoreau
As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
Henry David Thoreau
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
A gun gives you the body, not the bird.
