The doctrines of despair, of spiritual or political tyranny or servitude, were never taught by such as shared the serenity of nature.
Henry David Thoreau
What business have I in the woods, if I am thinking of something out of the woods?
I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.
The man for whom law exists - the man of forms the Conservative is a tame man.
The stars are God's dreams, thoughts remembered in the silence of his night.
The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.
