That man is richest whose pleasures are the cheapest.
Henry David Thoreau - Rich - Cheap

I wish to suggest that a man may be very industrious, and yet not spend his time well. There is no more fatal blunderer than he who consumes the greater part of his life getting his living. All great enterprises are self-supporting. The poet, for instance, must sustain his body by his poetry, as a steam planing-mill feeds its boilers with the shavings it makes. You must get your living by loving.
Henry David Thoreau - Life - Hard Work - Love - Career -
Time - Poetry

Henry David Thoreau - Success - Competition
