Famous quotes containing the words henry david thoreau, henry david, david thoreau, thoreau and/or david:

    We were soon in the smooth water of the Quakish Lake,... and we had our first, but a partial view of Ktaadn, its summit veiled in clouds, like a dark isthmus in that quarter, connecting the heavens with the earth.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The best way to correct a mistake is to make it right.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If you would get money as a writer or lecturer, you must be popular, which is to go down perpendicularly.... You are paid for being something less than a man. The state does not commonly reward a genius any more wisely. Even the poet laureate would rather not have to celebrate the accidents of royalty. He must be bribed with a pipe of wine; and perhaps another poet is called away from his muse to gauge that very pipe.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There was now no road further, the river being the only highway, and but half a dozen log huts, confined to its banks, to be met with for thirty miles. On either hand, and beyond, was a wholly uninhabited wilderness, stretching to Canada.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Apples, these I mean, unspeakably fair,—apples not of Discord, but of Concord!
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
