Mid Week Quote: Henry David Thoreau


I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I have been trying to be good and keep to my fitness regime but I must admit in the heat today I wasn’t keen on exercising much.

The quote I have chosen today is by Henry David Thoreau born 12th July 1817 and died 6th May 1862. Thoreau was an American essayist, poet and philosopher.


“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”


Henry David Thoreau


Happy reading.

Mid Week Quote

Happy Wednesday!

What is everyone reading this week?

Today’s quote is fromĀ The Compleat Gentleman by Henry Peacham.

The book was written as a guide for young men of the period to become well-rounded, couteous members of society. It was full of practical advice on how to travel, what to read and much more.

“The desire to have many books, and never to use them, is like a child that will have a candle burning by him all the while he is sleeping.”


Henry Peacham
