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

    What right have you to hold up this obstacle to my understanding you, to your understanding me! You did not invent it; it was imposed on you. Examine your authority. Even Christ, we fear, had his scheme, his conformity to tradition, which slightly vitiates his teaching. He had not swallowed all formulas. He preached some mere doctrines.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The effect of a good government is to make life more valuable; of a bad one, to make it less valuable.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Undoubtedly if we were to reform this outward life truly and thoroughly, we should find no duty of the inner omitted. It would be employment for our whole nature.... But a moral reform must take place first, and then the necessity of the other will be superseded, and we shall sail and plow by its force alone.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    That we have but little faith is not sad, but that we have little faithfulness. By faithfulness faith is earned.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A church that can never have done with excommunicating Christ while it exists! Away with your broad and flat churches, and your narrow and tall churches! Take a step forward, and invent a new style of out-houses. Invent a salt that will save you, and defend our nostrils.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
