A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on imagination dreams

I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on single, footstep, path, earth, thought, pathway, mind, deep, walk, mental, think, thoughts, dominate, life, and our lives

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau

A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau

Once, a few weeks after I came to the woods, for an hour I
doubted whether the near neighborhood of man was not essential
to a serene and healthy life. To be alone was somewhat unpleasant.
But in the midst of a gentle rain, while these thoughts prevailed, I
was suddenly sensible of such sweet and beneficent society in
Nature, in the very pattering of the drops, and in every sight and
sound around my house, an infinite and unaccountable friendliness
all at once, like an atmosphere, sustaining me, as made the fancied advantages of human neighborhood insignificant, and I have never thought of them since. Every little pine-needle expanded and swelled
with sympathy and befriended me. I was so distinctly made aware
of the presence of something kindred to me, that I thought no place
could ever be strange to me again.
