Daily Dose

From The Portable Thoreau, edited by Carl Bode


"I take it for granted, when I am invited to lecture anywhere -- for I have a little experience in this business -- that there is a desire to hear what I think on a subject, though I may be the greatest fool in the country, and not that I should say pleasant things merely, or such as the audience will assent to; and I resolve, accordingly, that I will give them a strong dose of myself."

From Life Without Principle
