Where I Lived, and What I Lived for

Posted in Philosophy with tags , on May 29, 2009 by Josh Wittner

Totally awesome part from the second chapter of Thoreau’s Walden:

Many think that seeds improve with age. I have no doubt that time discriminates between the good and the bad; and when at last I shall plant, I shall be less likely to be disappointed. But I would say to my fellows, once for all, As long as possible live free and uncommitted. It makes but little difference whether you are committed to a farm or the county jail.
