If One Advances Confidently in the Direction of His Dreams

Stafford Lake

“I have learned that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagines, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

–Henry David Thoreau.
(1817-1862. Author of “Walden” and “Walking.”  Thoreau’s books, articles, essays, journals, and poetry total over 20 volumes. Among his lasting contributions are his writings on natural history and philosophy, where he anticipated the methods and findings of ecology and environmental history, two sources of modern-day environmentalism. -Wikipedia.)

Sean at Stafford Lake

“Walden” is one of my most favorite books; I love his poetic prose of his life in the woods and his philosophic wisdom. He was a naturalist and environmentalist before it was fashionable.
