    The gods cannot misunderstand, man cannot explain.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I have not read far in the statutes of this Commonwealth. It is not profitable reading. They do not always say what is true; and they do not always mean what they say.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Let us wander where we will, the universe is built round about us, and we are central still.

    If a man cannot do brain work without stimulants of any kind, he had better turn to hand work—it is an indication on Nature’s part that she did not mean him to be a head worker.
    —Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    Our own country furnishes antiquities as ancient and durable, and as useful, as any; rocks at least as well covered with lichens, and a soil which, if it is virgin, is but virgin mould, the very dust of nature. What if we cannot read Rome or Greece, Etruria or Carthage, or Egypt or Babylon, on these; are our cliffs bare?
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
