Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains. I would drink deeper; fish in the sky, whose bottom is pebbly with stars.Henry David ThoreauThis edition covers fifteen sections of Henry David Thoreau's well-known Walden and includes several of his early essays from his journals, as well as A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, "Economy", "Where I Lived, and What I Lived For", "Solitude", "Higher Laws", "Reading", "Life Without Principle", "Friendship", "Love", "Early Essays", "Sadi", "Autumnal Tints", "Style in Writing", and "Walking". The second part of the text is "Civil Disobedience". Thoreau requires no introduction. His writings have been prized for more than a hundred fifty years. He lived life simple and fully. In this simplicity, he describes the true meaning of contentment, and to the reader, his prescription of "simplify, simplify" is echoed throughout his writings.I must add the cardinal fact, that there was an excellent wisdom in him (Thoreau), proper to a rare class of men, which showed the material world as a means and symbol.- Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1862Thoreau speaks to us in strikingly modern voice and on topics that are even more timely today than they were a century ago.- Charles AndersonAuthor of Thoreau's Vision

Civil disobedience, the refusal to obey certain laws, is a method of protest famously articulated by philosopher and writer Henry David Thoreau in his 1849 essay “Civil Disobedience.” Thoreau believed that protest became a moral obligation when laws collided with conscience. Since then, civil disobedience has been employed as a form of rebellion around the world. But is there a place for civil disobedience in democratic societies? When is civil disobedience justifiable? Is violence ever called for? Furthermore, how effective is civil disobedience?

This set of timeless essays from the quintessential American shares his valuable philosophies on nature, solitude, slavery, religion, politics, fulfilling work, civil responsibilities, and more. WALDEN, Thoreau’s beloved and well-known reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, looks at how the outside world can benefit from renouncing a materialistic way of life. “If the machine of government is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law.” —Thoreau “If a plant cannot live according to its nature, it dies; and so a man.” —Thoreau His other essays deal with the social problems of his time: CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE applies principles of individualism to civil life, culminating in a call for a life that answers to a power outside of and unaffected by the state. LIFE WITHOUT PRINCIPLE offers his program for a righteous livelihood through ten “commandments.” SLAVERY IN MASSACHUSETTS is based on a speech he gave at an antislavery rally after the reenslavement of fugitive slave Anthony Burns and relates that freedom could not exist while slavery remained. PLEA FOR CAPTAIN JAMES BROWN portrays his kinship to Brown’s abolitionist efforts and anger toward the injustice Brown received. “Thoreau was a great writer, philosopher, poet, and withal a most practical man, that is, he taught nothing he was not prepared to practise in himself. . . . He went to gaol for the sake of his principles and suffering humanity. His essay has, therefore, been sanctified by suffering. Moreover, it is written for all time. Its incisive logic is unanswerable.” —Mohandas Gandhi “. . . when, in the mid-1950s, the United States Information Service included as a standard book in all their libraries around the world a textbook . . . which reprinted Thoreau’s ‘Civil Disobedience,’ the late Senator Joseph McCarthy succeeded in having that book removed from the shelves—specifically because of the Thoreau essay.” —Walter Harding, in The Variorum Civil Disobedience "I became convinced that noncooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good. No other person has been more eloquent and passionate in getting this idea across than Henry David Thoreau. As a result of his writings and personal witness, we are the heirs of a legacy of creative protest." — Martin Luther King, Jr., Autobiography

Thoreau wrote Civil Disobedience in 1849. It argues the superiority of the individual conscience over acquiescence to government. Thoreau was inspired to write in response to slavery and the Mexican-American war. He believed that people could not be made agents of injustice if they were governed by their own consciences.
