Henry David Thoreau
American poet, essayist, naturalist, and abolitionist (1817–1862)
- "Men have become the tools of their tools."
- Simple: People are being controlled by the things they work with.
- "Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify."
- Simple: Our life is wasted in many small pieces by spending time on small things. Make things simple. Make things simple.
