Book: Henry David Thoreau, Walking and Other Essays

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.
                                                                                                            — Henry David Thoreau, (1817–1862)
