Thoreau's Journal: 18-Nov-1857

In one light, these are old and worn-out fields that I ramble over, and men have gone to law about them long before I was born, but I trust that I ramble over them in a new fashion and redeem them.

And now we treat Thoreau's well-trodden quotes in the same way as he treated the well-trodden fields. Let's hope we redeem them in the process. They seem redemptive to me, at any rate.
