If you are cheated out of a single dollar by your neighbor, you do not rest satisfied with knowing that you are cheated, or with saying that you are cheated, or even with petitioning him to pay you your due; but you take effectual steps at once to obtain the full amount, and see that you are never cheated again.More Henry David Thoreau quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.More Henry David Thoreau quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Think for yourself, or others will think for you without thinking of you.More Henry David Thoreau quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
