My philosophy statement:

I believe that the mind controls a person, and the actions that the people do, afterwards shape and mold them. By having all of these experiences the person is then defined into who they are today. Life should be lived to its fullest while acknowledge\ing the future while at the same time living life today.

How can a person live two lives at the same time?


For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us,2759137508_b85588dbc0.jpg
Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members,
All that breathe will share thy destiny.

We live meanly like ants,
So my scheme for order gave me most trouble,
My master desires to diminish the number of his faults, but he cannot accomplish it,

The chief end of man here to "glorify God and enjoy him forever."
If you maintain a dead church, contribute to a dead Bible-society

So cause Him to withdraw His present help from us,
God will not have his work made manifest by cowards

No array of terms can say how much I am at peace about God
Within these plantations of God, a decorum and sanctity reign, a perennial festival is dressed, and the guest sees not how he should tire of them in a thousand years,
In this pleasing, contrite wood-life which God allows me

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately
To a higher life then we fell asleep from; thus the darkness bear its fruit.
I came to die only to discover that I had not lived.
Let us spend one day deliberately as Nature and not be thrown off track by every nutshell.

A nobler want of man is served by nature
No law can be sacred to me but that of my nature
All other men and my own body, must be ranked under this name Nature.

The state of the crop in the surrounding farms alters the expression of the earth from week to week.3452701674_7f9c24a8c8.jpg
Until last year my land gave little
The best part of these men's farms, yet to this their warranty-deeds give no title.
Surely I could pick cherry blossom if I want to
I see how it gradually breaks down around me

My head is hands and feet
There's going to be a time when he needs to do this on his own
Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string


Let them that never lied die now to keep their souls

All which Philosophy distinguishes as the NOT ME
There will be a time when all of us shall cast away our veils.
As sin is but a name,
I denounce the proceedings
This ain’t the way it used to be
Because I cannot have another life, leave me my name
