Book Review: Life Without Principle by Henry David Thoreau

Some people have a talent to write and speak about ageless matters (I would have liked to write truths, but the truth is such a strong word and how can I tell now what holds true tomorrow,) and Henry David Thoreau is one of them. What he wrote in Life Without Principle holds true for many parts today. The prose might have changed, and the examples might have a new appearance, but behind it all is the same principle. If I had to summarize the essay in one sentence, it would be this: don’t live your life for money. And if you let me add another one don’t make a box to your views. Entertain ideas, think, and see.

The text itself was messy at times, making hard to find the point, but I think after reading two of his other books I get the hang of his writing style. I have always appreciated the message more than the form it is brought. Life Without Principle is a good essay. I read a page or two every morning.

Thank you for reading!
