Famous quotes containing the words thoreau and/or writings:

    Carlyle’s works, it is true, have not the stereotyped success which we call classic. They are a rich but inexpensive entertainment, at which we are not concerned lest the host has strained or impoverished himself to feed his guests. It is not the most lasting word, nor the loftiest wisdom, but rather the word which comes last.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In this part of the world it is considered a ground for complaint if a man’s writings admit of more than one interpretation.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
