Nothing is inherently and invincibly young except spirit. And spirit can enter a human being perhaps better in the quiet of old age and dwell there more undisturbed than in the turmoil of adventure. – Philosopher and writer George Santayana
This morning I tweeted a quote by Henry Thoreau, "There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root." It piqued my interest, so I set out to determine what the renowned author believed to be the root of all evil. I found a good description of his quote on the quora website. After reading that analysis I found myself searching for information related to his political leanings, which led me to this Wall Street Journal article . Perhaps you'll find those items as interesting as I have.
