Sample Book Insights:
#1 I, Henry David Thoreau, lived alone in the woods for two years and two months. I now live a sojourner in civilized life again. I have been asked many questions about my lifestyle, and I will answer some of them in this book.
#2 I have traveled a lot, and I have seen how the citizens of Concord are doing penance in a thousand remarkable ways. I have met many people who have inherited farms, houses, and cattle, and who are doing little else but work. They have no time to be angry.
#3 Men, even in America, are so busy with the factitious cares and superfluously coarse labors of life that they cannot enjoy the finer fruits of life. Their fingers are too clumsy and they are too busy to handle them delicately.
#4 It is hard to have a southern overseer, and worse to have a northern one. However, it is worst of all when you are the slave-driver of yourself. Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinion.
