Famous Quotes (Henry David Thoureau)

July 18, 2006

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. I think that there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself than this incessant business.

Henry David Thoreau

US Transcendentalist author (1817 – 1862)
