Our life is frittered away by detail... Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!!
— Henry David Thoreau.
Life gets easier as you think less and live more. Henry David Thoreau did this at Walden Pond by thinking less about the less important things and living life simply. Thoreau lived his life while he was at walden with great simplicity, he although only for a small time at Walden, lived in a shanty that he built with his bare hands and tools that he borrowed got the parts of his home from different men that no longer needed these simple boards or could no longer afford it. He then set out to write and think as he sat for hours a day and thought about his philosophy and how people waste time with petty things when they could be out living their lives happily and two the fullest.
