Inspirational Quote from Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American Inspirational Quote from Henry David Thoreauessayist, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, yogi, and historian. A leading transcendentalist, Thoreau is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay “Civil Disobedience” (originally published as “Resistance to Civil Government”), an argument for disobedience to an unjust state.

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

Henry David Thoreau was an interesting man.  Born over 200 years ago, his work is just as valuable and thought provoking now as it was at the time.

As a member of the Transcendental Movement, along with Ralph Waldo Emerson (and many others), his works created a lasting legacy with many of the movements active today.

I relish his positive message, above, that embodies persistence at it finest moments.  Each one of us — especially entrepreneurs — can take heart and follow his advice, finding success in unexpected places.

Success is within the reach of all of us!

Before I close, I want to share one last thought from Henry David Thoreau:

“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”
