Quotations from Walden

Why should we live with such hurry and waste of life? We are determined to be starved before we are hungry.

Still we live meanly like ants.

Our life is frittered away by detail.

We do not ride upon the railroad; it rides upon us.

Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.

Shams and delusions are esteemed for soundest truths.
