Toda novedad no es sino un olvido.

I went to the woods because I wished 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 discovered that I had not lived… I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swatch and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms. —Henry David Thoreau
