We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow-men; and along those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on behavior, biography, discovery, ethics, exercise, facts, idleness, interest, laws, learning, life, mathematics, mind, physics, rest, science, study, and sympathy

He is not a true man of science who does not bring some sympathy to his studies, and expect to learn something by behavior as well as by application. It is childish to rest in the discovery of mere coincidences, or of partial and extraneous laws. The study of geometry is a petty and idle exercise of the mind, if it is applied to no larger system than the starry one. Mathematics should be mixed not only with physics but with ethics; that is mixed mathematics. The fact which interests us most is the life of the naturalist. The purest science is still biographical.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on health, life, nature, past, sleep, and sympathy

Measure your health by your sympathy with morning and Spring. If there is no response in you to the awakening of nature, if the prospect of an early morning walk does not banish sleep, if the warble of the first bluebird does not thrill you, know that the morning and spring of your life are past. Thus you may feel your pulse.

We do not learn by inference and deduction and the application of mathematics to philosophy, but by direct intercourse and sympathy.
