"Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present."Henry David Thoreau on Roger Babson
"The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time."Henry David Thoreau on Abraham Lincoln
"Lost time is never found again."Henry David Thoreau on Benjamin Franklin
"Patience and time do more than strength or passion."Henry David Thoreau on Jean de La Fontaine
"The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is."Henry David Thoreau on C. S. Lewis
"None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm."
"I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude."
"I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will."
"A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone."
"The man who goes alone can start today but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready."
