Henry David Thoreau: Truth


“Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not; and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.”

Henry David Thoreau, “Walden,” the Conclusion
