Favorite Henry David Thoreau Quotes

1. "Insotit de Matilde si Jorge, care avea patru ani, m-am dus sa traiesc in muntii din Cordoba, la o ferma fara apa curenta si curent electric, in localitatea Pantanillo. Sub maiestuosul cer instelat, m-am simtit impacat. Ceva asemanator cu ceea ce spune Henry David Thoreau: "M-am dus in padure pentru ca voiam sa traiesc in meditatie, sa infrunt doar faptele esentiale ale vietii, sa vad daca puteam trai si sa invat ceea ce era de invatat; ca nu cumva sa descopar, apropiindu-ma de moarte, ca nu traisem cu adevarat"."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
