"It would be glorious to see humanity at leisure for once. It is nothing but work, work, work. I think there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself, than this incessant business. If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer; but if he spends his whole day as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making earth bald before her time, he is esteemed an industriousand enterprising citizen. As if a town had no interest in its forests but to cut them down!"
Henry David Thoreau
"Life Without Principle" (1863)
