OFF THE GRID
“There are nowadays professors of philosophy, but not philosophers … I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die,discover that I had not lived.”
– Henry David Thoreau, Walden or Life in the Woods
