Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinion. What a man thinks of himself, that it is which determines, or rather indicates, his fate.

The finest qualities of our nature, like the bloom on fruits, can be preserved only by the most delicate handling. Yet we do not treat ourselves nor one another thus tenderly.

Most of the luxuries, and many of the so-called comforts of life, are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.

I'm sorry but this book is impossible to read. The font size is so tiny one gets strained eyes after a bit. Text comes in 3 columns per page for some reason which adds to the "pleasure". The pages are not even numbered. No thanks

If you don’t mind suffering from eyestrain then this paperback is for you. I was so looking forward to a few hours of leisurely reading about Thoreau’s Walden pond experience and was very excited when the book arrived. The disappointment was great when I looked at the first few pages. Why would you publish a book that would require the average reader to resort to magnifying glasses in order to read it? For instance, the letter “t” measures just barely over 1 millimeter – not even close to 2 millimeters. For comparison I photographed pages from two other books with standard print; one is a page from a book by Jeffrey Archer and the other a page from Prentice Mulford’s “Thoughts are Things.” The tiny print of “Walden” doesn’t appear to be all that small in the photos, but they were taken with the camera’s Macro setting, otherwise you wouldn’t have been able to see/read it at all. Unless you have eyes like a hawk forget this edition. Very disappointing.
