Henry David Thoreau Quotes
The brilliant author of my favorite book, Walden, Henry David Thoreau was also a master minimalist, philosopher, poet and transcendentalist. He was an advocate of simple living, minimalism, vegetarianism, anti-consumerism and non-conformity. Here are some of his best inspirational quotes.
