I love this quote, and use it to remind myself the 'the woods' is whatever is before me. I particularly love the part about sucking all the marrow of life, yummmm delicious! JC "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 wanted to live deep and suck all the marrow of life...." — Henry David Thoreau, author of Walden [This message has been edited by JC (edited July 05, 2000).]

Before the beginning of great brilliance, there must be chaos. Before a brilliant person begins something great, they must look foolish in the crowd.
