Henry David Thoreau; July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862 was an American author, poet, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, philosopher, and leading transcendentalist. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay Civil Disobedience, an argument for individual resistance to civil government in moral opposition to an unjust state.
Now for today's quote:
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.”
It reminded me also of this quote by President David O. McKay stating that the purpose of our church was:
“...to make life sweet today, to give contentment to the heart today, to bring salvation today. …Some of us look forward to a time in the future—salvation and exaltation in the world to come—but today is part of eternity.”
So, what will you do with your piece of eternity today?
