"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals." -Henry David Thoreau
Lifes too short. In the book walden by Henry David Thoreau, he won't stop stressing that fact. Working your hard earned soul into making money, through unjust and unfair ways, that is what thoreau thinks society is, and he's right. Most people in the world get up early, for what? No one knows. They get up early to go somewhere, teach or talk calls or make presentations, all for one thing, money. What if you didn't need money? What if you had no want for money? That is what Thoreau wants. Thoreau believes that the complex society of his time period made it so that people didn't live there lives, and I believe that that is completely true. Thoreau never wants to be that person, that mindless drone who walks around, smelling and doing everything for money. Thoreau is his own human, he doesn't care what others think and thats all that matters.
