This (Walden) was one of the most important books I've read in all my life. I have re-read it and I will do so again in the future. Thoreau has some of the most interesting ideas I've read; you won't agree with him on many accounts, but he will force you to think.
Don't believe or accept everything you read but do read (or watch or listen to) everything you can and then try to make some sense out of it all.

This is the man who influenced Count Leo Tolstoy to take up Ahimsa or nonviolence, Tolstoy then recommended this to Mahatma Gandhi, then the ideas of peace eventually flowed back to USA to Martin Luther King and a generation who rejected the words of war and a refusal to see all as brothers from the establishment.
Here are dew drops of quiet reasoning which infiltrates the hasty world of 21st Century speeded up existence; here are gems that could show a way through our modern madness.
