Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau was an American author, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, historian, and foremost transcendentalist. He is best known for his book Walden and his essay "Civil Disobedience." 

"A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting."

— Journal, 19 February 1841
