"Tolerable Planet" bumper sticker
"Tolerable Planet" bumper sticker
Our Price: $3.00

A beautiful bumper sticker with greenery featured along the bottom edge, and the Thoreau quote, "What is the use of a house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on?" Credits Henry D. Thoreau. The sentence is taken from one of his letters to friend H.G.O. Blake in Worcester, Massachusetts. And yet, as with many other Thoreau quotes, it seems to hold much relevance for us today.
