The Quotable Thoreau is a great introduction or reintroduction to Thoreau's many memorable quotations. It's a reminder
that there is very little that's new. If you read self-help books, you'll quickly notice that Thoreau said most of it a long time ago. Perhaps
he was repeating the wisdom of the ages too but for more modern times. Three of my favorites were, On Education: 'What does education
often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch out of a free meandering brook.", On Clothes: "Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes",
and On Fear: "There is nothing so much to be feared as fear." Sound familiar, Mr. Roosevelt?
