Henry David Thoreau
Henry David Thoreau
12.7. 1817 Concord, Mass. – 6.5. 1862 Concord, Mass.
“It takes two to speak the truth – one to speak, and another to hear.”
“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. There is no play in them, for this comes after work. But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.” Walden, 1. Economy
“But, wherever a man goes, men will pursue and paw him with their dirty institutions, and, if they can, constrain him to belong to their desperate odd-fellow society.” Walden, 8. The Village
“If a man does not keep pace with his companions,
perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. ”

Walden, or Life in the Woods, 1854
