Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
The cart before the horse is neither beautiful nor useful.
It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?
Our life is frittered away by detail.

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.
