Motivating Quotations by Henry David Thoreau

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you

simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something.

Be true to your work, your word, and your friend.

All endeavor calls for the ability to tramp the last mile, shape the last plan, endure the last hours toil. The fight to the finish spirit is the one... characteristic we must posses if we are to face the future as finishers.

Cultivate the habit of early rising. It is unwise to keep the head long on a level with the feet.

Do not hire a man who does your work for money, but him who does it for love of it.

It is never too late to give up your prejudices.

An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.

Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant?
