You might think it’s strange that in high school one of my favorite books was Walden, by Henry David Thoreau. Yes, passages of it were boring, but I found a lot of passages to be inspirational:
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.
Of course it helped having the words brought to life in Dead Poet’s Society, but I thought it would be nice to have a page where we can share quotes that motivate and inspire us to be more than what we are today.
