"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."
Walden; or, Life in the Woods (1854)
Henry David Thoreau died on May 6, 1862
150 years ago today.
