“In the woods we return to reason and faith. There I feel that nothing can befall me in life - no disgrace, no calamity…” “Nature” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Simplified Life

“Our life is frittered away by detail. An honest man has hardly need to count more than his ten fingers, or in extreme cases he may add his ten toes, and lump the rest. Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!”

-Walden, Henry David Thoreau


“Live your life. Do your work. Then take your hat.”

“Conscience,” Henry David Thoreau

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
