MAKE SURE YOU HAVE TIME IN YOUR LIFE TO JUST THINK

The following are quotes from Henry David Thoreau Walden. It is a journal of personal freedom and awareness written in 1854.
The TRUTH will always be the truth. The Truth will set you free. This is a Valentine to you.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

"It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to care and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of the arts."

"When we are unhurried and wise, we perceive that only great and worthy things have any permanent and absolute existence - that petty fears and petty pleasures are but the shadow of reality. This is always exhilirating and sublime."
