opening words

Let us spend one day as deliberately as Nature.... Let us settle ourselves, and work and wedge our feet downward through the mud and slush of opinion, and prejudice, and tradition, and delusion, and appearance, that alluvion which covers the globe, through Paris and London, through New York and Boston and Concord, through church and state, through poetry and
philosophy and religion, till we come to a hard bottom and rocks in place, which we can call
reality, and say, This is, and no mistake.


From “Where I Lived, and What I Lived For” in Walden, published 150 years ago this summer. Richard Higgins reviews books inspired by Thoreau (page 55).
