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
