A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on concern, generations, and men

But why should not the New Englander try new adventures - not lay so much stress on his grain, his potato and grass crop, and his orchards - and raise other crops than these? Why concern ourselves so much about our beans for seed, and not be concerned at all about a new generation of men.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)
