"The invariable mark of wisdom is to find the miraculous in the common."
"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root."
— Henry David Thoreau, Walden (via quotesandfandom)
"I left the woods for as good a reason as I went there. Perhaps it seemed to me that I had several more lives to live, and could not spare any more time for that one."
— Henry David Thoreau, Walden (via climbthestacks)
