Henry David Thoreau

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty.

The obedient must be slaves.”

Henry David Thoreau


Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817-May 6, 1862) was an American essayist, philosopher, and poet. Thoreau’s writing is heavily influenced by his own life, in particular his time living at Walden Pond. He has a lasting and celebrated reputation for embracing non-conformity, the virtues of a life lived for leisure and contemplation, and the dignity of the individual.

A leading transcendentalist, he is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay “Civil Disobedience” (originally published as “Resistance to Civil Government”), an argument for disobedience to an unjust state.

Thoreau’s books, articles, essays, journals, and poetry amount to more than 20 volumes. Among his lasting contributions are his writings on natural history and philosophy, in which he anticipated the methods and findings of ecology and environmental history, two sources of modern-day environmentalism.

His literary style interweaves close observation of nature, personal experience, pointed rhetoric, symbolic meanings, and historical lore, while displaying a poetic sensibility, philosophical austerity, and attention to practical detail.He was also deeply interested in the idea of survival in the face of hostile elements, historical change, and natural decay; at the same time he advocated abandoning waste and illusion in order to discover life’s true essential needs.

Thoreau was a lifelong abolitionist, delivering lectures that attacked the fugitive slave law while praising the writings of Wendell Phillips and defending the abolitionist John Brown. Thoreau’s philosophy of civil disobedience later influenced the political thoughts and actions of such notable figures as Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr.

Thoreau is sometimes referred to as an anarchist. In “Civil Disobedience”, Thoreau wrote: “I heartily accept the motto,—’That government is best which governs least;’ and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe,—’That government is best which governs not at all;’ and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have. … But, to speak practically and as a cit­i­zen, unlike those who call themselves no-gov­ernment men, I ask for, not at once no gov­ernment, but at once a better government.”

Legacy

Thoreau did not see the huge successes in his lifetime that Emerson saw in his. If he was known, it was as a naturalist, not as a political or philosophical thinker. He only published two books in his lifetime, and he had to publish A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers himself, while Walden was hardly a bestseller.

Thoreau is now, however, known as one of the greatest American writers. His thinking has exerted a massive worldwide influence, in particular on the leaders of non-violent liberation movements such as Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., both of whom cited “Civil Disobedience” as a major influence on them.

Like Emerson, Thoreau’s work in transcendentalism responded to and reaffirmed an American cultural identity of individualism and hard work that is still recognizable today. Thoreau’s philosophy of nature is one of the touchstones of the American nature-writing tradition.

But his legacy is not only literary, academic, or political, but also personal and individual: Thoreau is a cultural hero for the way he lived his life as a work of art, championing his ideals down to the most everyday of choices, whether it be in solitude on the banks of Walden or in behind the bars of the Concord jail.

Henry David Thoreau Quotes

“I was not born to be forced.

I will breathe after my own fashion.

Let us see who is the strongest.”

Henry David Thoreau, “On the Duty of Civil Disobedience”

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary.

I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms…”

Henry David Thoreau

“The question is not what you look at,     but what you see.”

Henry David Thoreau

“How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.”

Henry David Thoreau

“I find it wholesome to be alone the greater part of the time.

To be in company, even with the best, is soon wearisome and dissipating.

I love to be alone.

I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.

What is called resignation is confirmed desperation.

From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats.

A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind.

There is no play in them, for this comes after work.

But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things…”

Henry David Thoreau, “Civil Disobedience and Other Essays”

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.

Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land.

There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”

Henry David Thoreau

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.

Now put the foundations under them.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“All good things are wild and free.”

Henry David Thoreau

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.

Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away.”

Henry David Thoreau

“Our life is frittered away by detail.

Simplify, simplify.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden and Other Writings”

“We need the tonic of wildness…

At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable.

We can never have enough of nature.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden: Or, Life in the Woods”

“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all.”

Henry David Thoreau, “A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers”

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours…”

Henry David Thoreau

“However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names.

It is not so bad as you are.

It looks poorest when you are richest.

The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise.

Love your life, poor as it is.

You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse.

The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man’s abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring.

I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“As if you could kill time without     injuring eternity.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.”

Henry David Thoreau

“There is no remedy for love but                 to love more.”

Henry David Thoreau

“Things do not change; We change.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.”

Henry David Thoreau

“The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately                     or in the long run.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.”

Henry David Thoreau, “I to Myself: An Annotated Selection from the Journal of Henry D. Thoreau”

“A man is rich in proportion to the number of things which he can afford to let alone.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”

Henry David Thoreau

“What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?”

Henry David Thoreau, “Familiar Letters”

“I do believe in simplicity.

It is astonishing as well as sad, how many trivial affairs even the wisest thinks he must attend to in a day; how singular an affair he thinks he must omit.

When the mathematician would solve a difficult problem, he first frees the equation of all incumbrances, and reduces it to its simplest terms.

So simplify the problem of life, distinguish the necessary and the real.

Probe the earth to see where your main roots run.”

Henry David Thoreau

“The preachers and lecturers deal with men of straw, as they are men of straw themselves.

Why, a free-spoken man, of sound lungs, cannot draw a long breath without causing your rotten institutions to come toppling down by the vacuum he makes.

Your church is a baby-house made of blocks, and so of the state.

…The church, the state, the school, the magazine, think they are liberal and free!

It is the freedom of a prison-yard.”

Henry David Thoreau, “I to Myself: An Annotated Selection from the Journal of Henry D. Thoreau”

“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“…for my greatest skill has been to want but little.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws be expanded, and interpreted in his favor in a more liberal sense, and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”




Bitcoin surges after accidentally released Treasury statement


Bitcoin surges after accidentally released Treasury statement



Prices of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have soared following the apparent accidental release of a U.S. Treasury statement on Biden’s expected executive order on digital assets.

The premature statement by Treasury Secretary Yellen, which was dated March 9, has since been removed.

“President Biden’s historic executive order calls for a coordinated and comprehensive approach to digital asset policy.  This approach will support responsible innovation that could result in substantial benefits for the nation, consumers, and businesses. 

It will also address risks related to illicit finance, protecting consumers and investors, and preventing threats to the financial system and broader economy.”

Quote from the now deleted statement

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is up nearly 8% in the last 24 hours.

Biden’s executive order aims to regulate the crypto market while also reaping the benefits of digital currencies.

So far, like most countries in the world, the US has tended to react to developments and has limited itself to pointing to a political-economic approach that is yet to be developed.


Statement by Secretary of the Treasury Janet L. Yellen on President Biden’s Executive Order on Digital Assets


March 9, 2022

WASHINGTON –  U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Janet L. Yellen released the following statement on President Biden’s executive order on digital assets. 

“President Biden’s historic executive order calls for a coordinated and comprehensive approach to digital asset policy.  This approach will support responsible innovation that could result in substantial benefits for the nation, consumers, and businesses.  It will also address risks related to illicit finance, protecting consumers and investors, and preventing threats to the financial system and broader economy.

Under the executive order, Treasury will partner with interagency colleagues to produce a report on the future of money and payment systems. We’ll also convene the Financial Stability Oversight Council to evaluate the potential financial stability risks of digital assets and assess whether appropriate safeguards are in place. And, because the questions raised by digital assets often have important cross-border dimensions, we’ll work with our international partners to promote robust standards and a level playing field.

This work will complement ongoing efforts by Treasury. Already, the Department has worked with the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets, the FDIC, and OCC to study one particular kind of digital asset – stablecoins– and to make recommendations. Under the executive order, Treasury and interagency partners will build upon the recently published National Risk Assessments, which identify key illicit financing risks associated with digital assets. 

As we take on this important work, we’ll be guided by consumer and investor protection groups, market participants, and other leading experts.  Treasury will work to promote a fairer, more inclusive, and more efficient financial system, while building on our ongoing work to counter illicit finance, and prevent risks to financial stability and national security.”

Napoleon Hill Quotes


Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill was an American author in the area of the new thought movement who was one of the earliest producers of the modern genre of personal-success literature.

He is widely considered to be one of the great writers on success.

His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich (1937), is one of the best-selling books of all time (at the time of Hill’s death in 1970, Think and Grow Rich had sold 20 million copies).

Hill’s works examined the power of personal beliefs, and the role they play in personal success.

He became an advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt from 1933 to 1936. “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve” is one of Hill’s hallmark expressions.

How achievement actually occurs, and a formula for it that puts success in reach of the average person, were the focal points of Hill’s books.



” The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE.

Keep this constantly in mind.

Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat. “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

Desire

Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

Start where you stand, and work whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along. “

An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others. “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

An educated man

” Every adversity, every failure, every heartbreak, carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit. “

Opinions…cheapest commodities on earth !

” IF – and this is the greatest of them all – I had the courage to see myself as I really am, I would find out what is wrong with me, and correct it, then I might have a chance to profit by my mistakes and learn something from the experience of others,for I know that there is something WRONG with me, or I would now be where I WOULD HAVE BEEN IF I had spent more time analyzing my weaknesses, and less time building alibis to cover them. “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

Worry will never bring it back. “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

Love

” TELL THE WORLD WHAT YOU INTEND TO DO, BUT FIRST SHOW IT.

This is the equivalent of saying “deeds, and not words, are what count most. “

Failure cannot cope with persistence. “

Nature

Life is a checkboard

” Close friends and relatives, while not meaning to do so, often handicap one through “opinions” and sometimes through ridicule, which is meant to be humorous.

Opinions

It is the universal weakness of LACK OF AMBITION! “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

Lack of Ambition

“One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat.”

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

Temporary defeat

” Love is essential for happiness, but the person who loves so deeply that his or her happiness is placed entirely in the hands of another, resembles the little lamb who crept into the den of the nice, gentle little wolf and begged to be permitted to lie down and go to sleep, or the canary. “

Napoleon Hill – “The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons”

Love

” The leaders in every walk of life decide quickly, and firmly.

That is the major reason why they are leaders.

The world has the habit of making room for the man whose words and actions show that he knows where he is going. “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

Know where you’re going

” ASK any wise man what he most desires and he will, more than likely, say “more wisdom. “

More Wisdom

Use it, and reach your own decisions. “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

You have a brain…Use it!

Thoughts are things,” and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a burning desire…

Napoleon Hill

Thoughts are things

” Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat.”

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

No retreat

” The mind has a definite way of clothing one’s thoughts in appropriate physical equivalents.

Think in terms of poverty and you will live in poverty.

Think in terms of opulence and you will attract opulence.

Through the eternal law of harmonious attraction, one’s thoughts always clothe themselves in material things appropriate unto their nature. “

The Mind

” No man is your enemy, no man is your friend, every man is your teacher. “

Napoleon Hill – “The Prosperity Bible: The Greatest Writings of All Time on the Secrets to Wealth and Prosperity”

Every man is your teacher

” INSUFFICIENT EDUCATION.

This is a handicap that may be overcome with comparative ease.

Experience has proven that the best-educated people are often those who are known as ‘self-made’ or self-educated.

It takes more than a university degree to make one a person of education.

Any person who is educated has learned to get whatever they want in life without violating the rights of others.

Education consists not so much of knowledge, but of knowledge effectively and persistently applied.

People are paid not merely for what they know, but more particularly for what they do with what they know. “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

Self-Education

” Then accumulated knowledge is not wisdom?

A Great heavens, no!

If knowledge were wisdom, the achievements of science would not have been converted into implements of destruction. “

Napoleon Hill – “Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success”

Knowledge vs Wisdom

” The entire world is made up of only two things, energy and matter.

In elementary physics we learn that neither matter nor energy (the only two realities known to man) can be created nor destroyed.

Both matter and energy can be transformed, but neither can be destroyed.

Life is energy, if it is anything.

If neither energy nor matter can be destroyed, of course life cannot be destroyed.

Life, like other forms of energy, may be passed through various processes of transition, or change, but it cannot be destroyed.

Death is mere transition.

If death is not mere change, or transition, then nothing comes after death except a long, eternal, peaceful sleep, and sleep is nothing to be feared.

Thus you may wipe out, forever, the fear of Death. “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

Fear of Death

” ‘Master Mind’, meaning a mind that is developed through the harmonious co-operation of two or more people who ally themselves for the purpose of accomplishing any given task. “

Napoleon Hill – “The Law of Success”

“Master Mind”

” KNOWLEDGE will not attract money, unless it is organized, and intelligently directed, through practical PLANS OF ACTION, to the DEFINITE END of accumulation of money.

Lack of understanding of this fact has been the source of confusion to millions of people who falsely believe that “knowledge is power.”

It is nothing of the sort!

Knowledge is only potential power.

It becomes power only when, and if, it is organized into definite plans of action, and directed to a definite end. “

Napoleon Hill – “Think and Grow Rich”

Knowledge is potential power

Door of Opportunity…

Oliver Napoleon Hill (October 26, 1883 – November 8, 1970) was an American  self-help author.

He is best known for his book Think and Grow Rich (1937), which is among the 10 best-selling self-help books of all time.

Hill's works insisted that fervid expectations are essential to improving one's life.

Most of his books were promoted as expounding principles to achieve "success".

Albert Einstein

Man of Value

“If you don’t know what you want, you’ll never find it.

If you don’t know what you deserve, you’ll always settle for less.

You will wander aimlessly, uncomfortably numb in your comfort zone, wondering how life has ended up here.

Life starts now, live, love, laugh and let your light shine!”

Rob Liano

Let your light shine

Deepak Chopra

“Every job from the heart is, ultimately, of equal value.

The nurse injects the syringe; the writer slides the pen; the farmer plows the dirt; the comedian draws the laughter.

Monetary income is the perfect deceiver of a man’s true worth.”

Criss Jami, “Killosophy”

Job from the Heart

“A person that does not value your time will not value your advice.”

Orrin Woodward

Gold is heavy.

Your weight in gold is not very much gold at all.

Aren’t you worth more than that?”

Terry Pratchett, “Making Money” 

You are worth more than gold

Louis L’Amour, “Education of a Wandering Man”

Existence

“Our sole purpose on this earth is to add value to others.

It doesn’t make sense to just exist in people’s lives or to be a drain on them, does it?”

John Cage

“Always remember that the minority dictates the prices, and the majority governs the value.”

“Market quotes change every second, but business evolves steadily.

You have ample time to evaluate a business to buy or not to buy.

There is no rush.”

Naved Abdali

Evaluate

“The number one reason people lose money in investing is because they buy assets without giving any thought whatsoever to the fair value.”

Naved Abdali

Fair Value

“If investors do not know or never attempt to know the fair value, they can pay any price.

More often, the price they pay is far greater than the actual value.”

Naved Abdali

Actual Value

“Watching every tick up and every tick down is just wasting your valuable time.

Do yourself a favor, and pick up a book or two about investing each month.”

Naved Abdali

Pick up a book

“An ounce of gold will always be an ounce of gold regardless of the length of possession.

The short-term value will go up or down, but gold prices will follow the general inflation rate in the long run.”
