Quote of the Day – the marrow of life

“I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life.”

Henry David Thoreau

I adore this quote. It’s so illustrative and provoking and it really makes you feel what Thoreau was trying to say. I think we should all strive to live in this way; to stop living our lives on a just-get-by basis and to really dig deep, harness our strengths and run with life. If when you reflect on your life, you see a dissatisfying daily routine of work, eat and sleep then you really should take a moment to think about Thoreau’s philosophy and how much juicier life could be if you were to abandon your fears and conditioned ways of thinking and dive head-first into the confusing, wonderful, abundant, terrifying, exhilarating cesspool that is life.
