Henry David Thoreau
printer friendly version
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 current slides away, but eternity remains. I would drink
deeper, fish in the sky, whose bottom is pebbly with stars.

("Walden," 1854)
