On Walden Pond by The Herrmannators

No doubt another may think for me
but it's not therefore desirable
that he should do so to exclusion
of my thinking for myself
I am convinced both by faith and experience
that to maintain one's self on this earth
is not a hardship but a pastime
if we will live simply and wisely

Simplicity, Simplicity, Simplicity
Let your affairs be but two or three
Simplicity, Simplicity, Simplicity
Not a hundred or a thousand
A man is rich in proportion
to the number of things that he can afford
to let alone
Let it alone

I went to the woods because I wished
to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life,
and see if I couldn't learn what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die,
discover that I had not lived.
I did not wish to live what wasn't life,
living is so dear


Read your fate see what is before you
and walk on in to futurity
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.
What's called resignation's confirmed desperation.
But if one advances confidently
in the direction of his dreams,
and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined,
he will meet with success unexpected in common hours

Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.
I drink at it; but while I drink I see
the bottom and detect how shallow it really is.
Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains.
If a man doesn't keep pace with companions,
perhaps it's because he hears a different drummer.
Let him step to the music which he hears,
however measured or far away.
