Walden Pond

2008.10.12
pixel
October is the month of painted leaves.
—Thoreau
pixel
walking around the pond—

“There is no remedy for love but to love more.”

Henry David Thoreau
pixel
a small pond off the larger pond—

A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature.
It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures
the depth of his own nature.

from the chapter "The Ponds" in Walden
pixel
a wonderful place to read—

How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book.

—Henry David Thoreau,
pixel
or go fishing—

Some circumstantial evidence is very strong,
as when you find a trout in the milk.
—Thoreau
pixel
or kayaking—

“Simplify, simplify.”

Henry David Thoreau
pixel
or to simply visit—

“Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.”

Henry David Thoreau
pixel
building with rocks is in the blood—

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

— Henry David Thoreau
pixel
To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.
—Henry David Thoreau
pixel
Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.

— Henry David Thoreau
pixel
What is the use of a house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on?
—Henry David Thoreau
pixel
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
—Henry David Thoreau
pixel
Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all.
—Henry David Thoreau
pixel
for some people the weather dictated swimming—

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.
—Henry David Thoreau
pixel
for others—eating
pixel
The universe is wider than our views of it.
—Henry David Thoreau
pixel
Nay, be a Columbus to whole new continents and worlds within you,
opening new channels, not of trade, but of thought.

—Thoreau
pixel
This world is but a canvas to our imagination.
—Henry David Thoreau
pixel
The universe has seen fit to give New England some spectacular autumn weather—a warm blazing sun and a belief that we held the cold at bay. Walden Pond was teeming with dialects, languages, walkers, swimmers —and those who came to see where Thoreau lived when these woods offered solitude.

On a cold winter day you can still catch a glimpse of the quiet.

In my afternoon walk I would fain forget all my morning occupations and my obligations to society.
—Henry David Thoreau
