Thoreau & Walden Pond

Thoreau about Walden Pond. More about him: Henry David Thoreau





It is what one You tube user wrote:
"The shop that sells "trinkets and books" is run by the Thoreau Society and the books they sell are all about Thoreau, Walden and the 19th Century, as well as modern day issues that Thoreau influenced. The roads and railroad were there when HDT lived there (1845-1847) and, in fact, there were almost no trees when he lived there. Its prettier now then when he lived there! "

Thoreau said "Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around."
The same phrase coming from someone else may not have had as much weight as it does in his case. He had ideas, he lived them, and so became an example for generations to come.
He is a beautiful person.

Thoreau and many others came and left a foundation that subsequent generations could stand upon. There words and their life are trail markers for others to follow and we have the opportunity to touch the dreams they shared that inspire us. We can journey further, leaving our own markers along the way. In this we honor the love they shared.
