But lo! men have become the tools of their tools. The man who independently plucked the fruits when he was hungry is become a farmer; and he who stood under a tree for shelter, a housekeeper. We no longer camp as for a night, but have settled down on earth and forgotten heaven.
We have adopted Christianity merely as an improved method of agriculture. We have built for this world a family mansion, and for the next a family tomb.
— Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) “Walden”

Thanks for all of these posts. They add a needed dose of thoughtfulness to my day.
Thank you for todays literary selection. It’s as timeless as the day it was written and has made me search for my old dogeared copy of Walden hoping to uncover some other forgotten jewels.
Beautiful chest as well.
Be well my friend,
Tremendous quotes these last few weeks.
Much appreciated, sir.
