We might climb a tree, at least.
Henry David Thoreau
Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!
Our village life would stagnate if it were not for the unexplored forests and meadows that surround it. We need the tonic of wildness...
Is a democracy, such as we know it, the last improvement possible in government?
In the long run men only hit what they aim at. Therefore, though they should fail immediately, they had better aim at something high.
Simplify, simplify. Instead of three meals a day, if it be necessary eat but one; instead of a hundred dishes, five; and reduce other things in proportion.
