I wanted to live deep and suck all the marrow of life

to live so sturdily and Spartan-like
as to put to rout all that was not life,

to cut a broad swath and shave close

to drive life into a corner,
and reduce it to its lowest terms.

excerpt from walden
henry david thoreau

the art of simple food
