Henry David Thoreau, in Walden (Everyman’s Library), speaks to a serious issue more of us might need to ponder in our hurried days:

“To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school,

but so to love wisdom

as to live according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity, and trust.”
