~Henry David Thoreau
As I read, I began to think. The words had so much meaning, it was almost impossible to get what Thoreau was trying to say in one time. I re-read the chapter, and it began to make so much sense. When Thoreau says, “let company come and let company go, let the bells ring and the children cry- determined to make a day of it,” I realized that he meant: let events happen, do not try to stop things, keep it simple, and you will truly realize what occurs.
The chapter finished, my brain was filled with thoughts. The two paragraph chapter seemed like a book of knowledge. Each line having so much power. The most important lesson I learned is that you can not truly experience something if you try to change it. Like Nature, try to listen, taste, smell, and touch the beauty around you, but never disturb it.
Live simpler, and you will live right.
