Henry David Thoreau

What would a favorite quotes blog be without a nod to Henry David Thoreau.
From "Walden:"
Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.
I know of no more encouraging fact that the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscience endeavor.
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.
The universe is wider than our views of it.
I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that is one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
