Henry David Thoreau Quotes

Thought for Today

“If a man walks in the woods
for love of them half of each day,
he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer.
But if he spends his days as a speculator,
shearing off those woods
and making the earth bald before her time,
he is deemed an industrious
and enterprising citizen.”

~ Henry David Thoreau
