    " After opening the cover to read the first few lines of the book, I found myself reading page 8 before I looked up to catch my breath! It's safe to say that as soon as i'm done with this book, i'll be treating myself to some Emerson! "

    " Read about half of Walden while I was hiking the John Muir Trail. It was perfect for that setting. I'd like to finish it someday. Perhaps when I'm out on another adventure. "

    " I read the Finnish translation of the Walden. Surprisingly current thoughts, though some of them where quite amusing, because they were way too critical. Can´t help thinking of; what if people would have lived differently the past 100 years or so. "
