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

    It is impossible to say all that we think, even to our truest Friend. We may bid him farewell forever sooner than complain, for our complaint is too well grounded to be uttered.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The researcher is more memorable than the researched.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is remarkable that the dead lie everywhere under stones.... Why should the monument be so much more enduring than the fame which it is designed to perpetuate,—a stone to a bone? “Here lies,”M”Here lies”;Mwhy do they not sometimes write, There rises? Is it a monument to the body only that is intended?
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I think of no news to tell you. It is a serene summer day here, all above the snow. The hens steal their nests, and I steal their eggs still, as formerly. This is what I do with the hands. Ah, labor,—it is a divine institution, and conversation with many men and hens.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
