January 11, 1852

 in Thoreau’s Journal:

If I travel in a simple, primitive, original manner, standing in a truer relation to men and nature, travel away from the old and commonplace, get some honest experience of life, if only out of my feet and homesickness,

then it becomes less important whither I go or how far.

I so see the world from a new and more commanding point of view.
