The Challenge: Post three quotes and nominate three people a day to the challenge, for three days.
Since my high school days in the Rebellious 60s, I’ve enjoyed the works of Henry David Thoreau. I can’t say I’ve ever lived as simply as he did at Walden’s Pond, nevertheless, his works left their indelible mark.

And the nominees for Day One are:
