Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.
In Wildness is the preservation of the world.
Surely joy is the condition of life.
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.

The Adventures of Henry Thoreau - Michael Sims (Paperback)
A Young Man's Unlikely Path to Walden Pond." A biography that begins with Thoreau's childhood and ends when Thoreau is in his late twenties. Much of it is derived from writings of his nineteenth century contemporaries. In the author's words, "My own book moves toward and culminates in this turning point (Thoreau's 2 years at Walden Pond- writing of 'A Week" and beginning of 'Walden') as a quirky but talented young man named Henry evolves into an original and insightful writer named Thoreau."
