And came out with mosquito bites all over me

Henry David Thoreau died on this day in 1862. In Walden, he wrote:

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I have not lived.”

And also:

"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.”
