Thoreau's Journal: 09-Oct-1857

It has come to this,—that the lover of art is one, and the lover of nature another, though true art is but the expression of our love of nature. It is monstrous when one cares but little about trees but much about Corinthian columns, and yet this is exceedingly common.

If Henry David Thoreau was a lover of anything it was himself and his money.

I don't know who you are (but I do know WHAT you are), but you better stop your lies for whatever warped reason you feel the need to put down Henry.

You are just more proof that there are not enough good people in this world any more.

Too bad you aren't bright enough to understand or appreciate Henry. Now go watch Fox News while swilling another beer, okay Junior?
