Where do you go?
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...
I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life,
to life so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life
to cut a broad swath and shave close
to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms
...and not, when I came to die, discover than I had not lived.
