What You Bring To It

Henry David Thoreau

“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.”

“Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.”

“Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.”

“Do what nobody else can do for you. Omit to do anything else.”

“We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success.”

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”

“There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself.”

“Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.”
