Slow down

Why should we live with such hurry and waste of life? We are determined to be starved before we are hungry…when we are unhurried and wise, we perceive that only great and worthy things have any permanent and absolute existence, that petty fears and petty pleasures are but the shadow of the reality.” -Henry David Thoreau in Walden

 

 

He wrote this in 1840s America, but how relevant it still is today!
