Wednesday Words of Wisdom: H.D. Thoreau

Henry_David_Thoreau

I can’t think of a better quote with which to start, and sent the tone for, the new year.  This won’t be the last time we hear from ol’ Henry this year.

“If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behavior.”
–Henry David Thoreau

Best Damn Quotes: Edward Abbey

Abbey“At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “this far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behavior.”

~ Edward Abbey
