I have a English Literature degree.
Because of this, occasionally you’ll find me writing about authors that bring back bad memories of high school English classes. But I promise you, if I bring up a writer, it’s because they had something important to say in our progress to become superheroes.
One such author is none other than Henry David Thoreau. You probably know him from his most famous book, Walden.
The man himself was a superhero. His writing can help you become a superhero, too.
Throughout the 1850s, Thoreau constantly was reworking a piece that he considered one of his seminal works. He read it more than any other of his lectures. The essay I’m talking about is Walking.
“In Wildness is the preservation of the world.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
In Walking, Thoreau describes how it is a spiritual activity that allows man to get back to his wild nature. Thoreau walked four hours a day as a spiritual pursuit.
Thoreau would be proud.
