Quote of the Day


Freedom is never more than one generation away from
extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the
bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected,
and handed on for them to do the same, or
one day we will spend our sunset years
telling our children and our children's
children what it was once like in the
United States where men were free.

Good character is not formed in a week or a month.
It is created little by little, day by day.  Protracted

Thoreau



Reading Henry David Thoreau's "The Maine Woods" and this passage really stood out.

They're hunting moose at night in/near what is now known as the 100 Mile Wilderness: 

Once, when Joe had called again, and we were listening for moose, we heard, come faintly echoing, or creeping from far through the moss-clad aisles, a dull, dry, rushing sound with a solid core to it, yet as if half smothered under the grasp of the luxuriant and fungus-like forest, like the shutting of a door in some distant entry of the damp and shaggy wilderness. If we had not been there, no mortal had heard it. When we asked Joe in a whisper what it was, he answered, "Tree fall." There is something singularly grand and impressive in the sound of a tree falling in a perfectly calm night like this, as if the agencies which overthrow it did not need to be excited, but worked with a subtle, deliberate, and conscious force, like a boa-constrictor, and more effectively then than even in a windy day. If there is any such difference, perhaps it is because trees with the dews of the night on them are heavier than by day.
