Thoreau's Journal: 25-Jan-1858

You must love the crust of the earth on which you dwell more than the sweet crust of any bread or cake. You must be able to extract nutriment out of a sandheap. You must have so good an appetite as this, else you will live in vain.

Thanks for keeping on with Henry's Journals. Each day I read this - preferably in the morning. I am encouraging others of like mind to do the same.
I have his Journals and spend time in them but it is nice to go to your blog for a portion of my daily centering.

Thanks for the good words. It's always nice to know someone appreciates this blog. It's the best way I've found to religiously read the journals. But it's nevertheless work sometimes. So I'm always buoyed by those that feel it is of worth to them. Thank you.

Yes, today's entry makes a great little epigram. I have also pointed people this way (especially non-bloggers), because it is such a great idea and an easy thing to include in your day. Thanks, Greg, for making the effort!
