For the Love of the Woods | Quote by Henry David Thoreau


If a man walk in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer; but if he spends his whole day as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making earth bald before her time, he is esteemed an industrious and enterprising citizen. As if a town had no interest in its forests but to cut them down!
~Henry David Thoreau

It is time for a full-on revolution, folks,
before it is too late.
