“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” – Henry David Thoreau
Henry David Thoreau was born on July 12, 1817, in Concord, Massachusetts. He began writing nature poetry in the 1840s, with poet Ralph Waldo Emerson as a mentor and friend. In 1845 he began his famous two-year stay on Walden Pond, which he wrote about in his master work, Walden or Life in the Woods.
