Famous quotes containing the word thoreau:

    What men call social virtues, good fellowship, is commonly but the virtue of pigs in a litter, which lie close together to keep each other warm.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Gentleness and delicacy of character are everywhere apparent in his verse. The simplest and humblest words come readily to his lips.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The post-office appeared a singularly domestic institution here. Ever and anon the stage stopped before some low shop or dwelling, and a wheelwright or shoemaker appeared in his shirt- sleeves and leather apron, with spectacles newly donned, holding up Uncle Sam’s bag, as if it were a slice of home-made cake, for the travelers, while he retailed some piece of gossip to the driver, really as indifferent to the presence of the former as if they were so much baggage.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
