More From Henry David Thoreau
- "If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right. Men will believe what they see."
- "All men are children, and of one family. The same tale sends them all to bed, and wakes them in the morning."
- "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."
More In Death
- "Man is born in a day, and he dies in a day, and the thing is easily over; but to have a sick heart for three-fourths of one’s lifetime is simply to have death renewed every morning; and life at that price is not worth living."― Gilbert Parker
- "We love to expect, and when expectation is either disappointed or gratified, we want to be again expecting."― Samuel Johnson
- "The Teutons have been singing the swan song ever since they entered the ranks of history. They have always confounded truth with death."― Henry Miller
