"It is like molten glass…and the few motes in it are pure and beautiful like the imperfections in glass," wrote Henry David Thoreau of Walden Pond, seen here at sunset. Seeking life’s meanings, Thoreau lived without luxuries in Walden’s woods for two years and advised, "Our life is frittered away by detail…Simplify, simplify."
National Geographic - December, 1966
