“If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal — that is your success.” Henry David Thoreau: On Defining Your Own Success Henrydavidthoreau, Walden Ponds, Interesting People, Quote, Book, American Author, Civil Disobedi, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau was an American author, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, and leading transcendentalist. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay Civil Disobedience, an argument for individual resistance to civil government in moral opposition to an unjust state.
This kind of reminds me of the C.O's talk Thursday. The aviation, navigation, and communication. Most specifically the navigation.

"Walden" es un clásico, Henry David Thoreau ejerció una influencia importante en pensadores como Gandhi, Luther King y Tolstoi. Es el precursor del ambientalismo por excelencia. Se opuso a la guerra de EStados Unidos con México. Definitivamente algo que hay que leer.
