Henry David Thoreau

“It is not for a man to put himself in such an attitude to society, but to maintain himself in whatever attitude he find himself through obedience to the laws of his being, which will never be one of opposition to a just government, if he should chance to meet with such.”


Henry David Thoreau, Walden & Civil Disobedience
