5 Great Lessons from Henry David Thoreau:

  1. Set your goals high and live a full life.
  2. “When it is time to die, let us not discover that we have never lived.”

  3. Practice patience.
  4. "Renew thyself completely each day."

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

  7. Stay positive.
  8. "As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives."

  9. Frequently practice gratitude.
  10. "I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite - only a sense of existence."
