I enjoy sharing some of my photos and favorite quotes as much as I enjoy my wanderings in the woods. Today I am sharing two quotes as I could not decide between them.
“We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal and then leap in the dark to our success.”
– Henry David Thoreau
I am happy to share some of my favorite trails with you. All you have to do is ask.
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”
― Henry David Thoreau
About Henry David Thoreau
Henry David Thoreau, the transcendentalist philosopher and author, is best known for Walden, a spiritual memoir about his two-year sojourn in the woods. He was born in Concord, Massachusetts, in 1817 and lived nearly all his life in that small town. He explored the area as a land surveyor, and became the first American environmentalist. His writing presaged the field of ecology. He died of tuberculosis in 1862.
