“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours … In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness.” – Henry Thoreau

This is the Thoreau family’s grave. Henry Theoreau’s to the far left hand side. Visitors leave him pencils because his family owned a pencil factory.
