Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something.

Henry David Thoreau

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.

Henry David Thoreau

The only people who ever get anyplace interesting are the people who get lost.

Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau

The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched.

Henry David Thoreau (via bookmania)

A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone.

Henry David Thoreau

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

Henry David Thoreau (via creatingaquietmind)

(via quote-book)

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.
